Crawford Technologies has announced that it has experienced a record-breaking year filled with many achievements, including placement onto four esteemed lists that rank the fastest-growing companies throughout North America and Canada. Despite a worldwide recession, Crawford experienced 30% revenue growth in 2012. With the company’s fiscal year ended September, 2012, there are no signs of slowdown as the company approaches the end of its first quarter in 2013.
“It has been a real honor to be listed among some of the greatest companies in North America,” said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies. “Credit for our success and continued growth goes entirely to our amazing team of talented, innovative and hardworking employees.”
“During 2012, we added many Fortune 100 companies and large public sector organizations to our growing customer base. The fact that 60% of our sales were to existing clients demonstrates that our excellent customer service, fair business practices and rock-solid products resonate with people today.”
