Rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth during the five year period from 2004-2008. Creaform grew 4338 percent during this period.
Creaform's president, Mr. Charles Mony, credits the highly innovative character of Creaform's product lines - groundbreaking in the industry - and very high quality and reliability standards with the company's revenue growth over the past five years. He said, "Of course, our ranking in the Technology Fast 50 in Canada let us anticipate good results, but I must admit that I'm very impressed and extremely proud of Creaform's sky-rocketing progression. We succeeded in leaving our 2008 200th position behind to reach the 45th rank of this continental ranking this year, and I owe this to the whole team at Creaform and to their passion, innovation and determination."
