(PRWEB) October 22, 2005
IXEurope, Europe’s leading datacentre services company, today announced that it is ranked on the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology firms in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The company has also made the London and Southern Technology Fast 50, which is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology firms in this region. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years, from 2000–2004.
IXEurope’s CEO, Guy Willner, believes that this achievement is a testament to the fact that the company has been built on a sound business plan, an innovative yet considered strategy and the backing of a strong management team.
He said, “Providing Datacentre service and Business Continuity solutions to some of the worlds largest entreprise and web companies is demanding but very satisfying work. Being recognised as one of the top 500 fastest growing technology companies across Europe and top 50 in our region is a great achievement for the team and shows how far they have taken their commitment to excellence in our industry. IXEurope continues to grow at a faster rate than all other significant competitors in the European market and we are now larger than the only remaining quoted datacentre services company in Europe.”
“The team has shown tremendous commitment to providing high levels of service to our customers and we are delighted that our dedication has paid off. Securing a place on these high profile league tables clearly demonstrates how IXEurope has remained dynamic and thrived.”
To celebrate the achievement, IXEurope will be attending the annual awards ceremonies where its specific ranking will be announced. The Fast 50 Award ceremony will be held on the 8th November and the EMEA Fast 500 ceremony on the 30th November.
