I'm proud to be a part of a program that celebrates such an outstanding group of entrepreneurs and business owners, who continue to rise to the top
West Columbia, SC (PRWEB) February 9, 2009
Floor buffer and cleaning equipment company Southeastern Equipment and Supply, Inc. has been named one of South Carolina's top 25 fastest growing companies for 2008. The awards, now in their seventh year, are co-sponsored by Elliott Davis, LLC and the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, and recognize the state's companies with the greatest percentage increases in both gross revenue (or assets) and full-time employment over the previous fiscal year.
Southeastern Equipment, which offers reconditioned equipment from brands like Tennant was honored, along with the other winners, at the recent South Carolina Chamber of Commerce Annual Summit luncheon near Charleston. General/Sales Manager Grady Martin accepted the award on behalf of the company, saying, "We are happy to be recognized by the South Carolina Chamber. When looking at the other organizations represented on the list, we are in great company. We look forward to hopefully being able to repeat this accomplishment for 2009."
Floor scrubber companies like Southeastern Equipment were not the only ones to receive the award. Beyond the floor sweeper industry, top businesses from the financial, construction, manufacturing, technology, and professional services industries were also recognized. Of the diversity among the winners, Buster Kennedy, marketing manager for Elliott Davis and director of the competition, said, "It says great things about the future of our economy that we have such growth in companies of the Midlands, Upstate and Coastal regions, and in companies of varying sizes."
In the midst of the widespread economic recession, South Carolina Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Otis Rawl called the awardees' resilience and growth encouraging to the state. "I'm proud to be a part of a program that celebrates such an outstanding group of entrepreneurs and business owners, who continue to rise to the top," he said.
