Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 18, 2009
PCPD LLC, has been named to the Business First, 14th Annual Fast 50. Companies named to The Fast 50 are the fastest growing emerging businesses in central Ohio.
"The Columbus Business First Fast 50 represents some of the fastest-growing privately held companies across Central Ohio. These companies are creating eight out of 10 new jobs across our region today and thus are extremely important to our region's economy," says Don DePerro, president and publisher of Columbus Business First. "Especially now, in times of an economic downturn, the strength and growth of these companies helps to keep our economy from an even faster downward spiral. There's no bad news here - these companies are agile and moving forward every day."
PCPD LLC made the list with growth exceeding 150% year over year making it the 6th fastest growing business on the list. Companies making the list must be headquartered in Central, OH, privately held, and have revenues over $1 million a year over a three year operating history.
"The Business First, Fast 50 is a great accomplishment for our company," said Brian Frank, Director of Business Development at PCPD LLC. "Even with times being tough, our proven track record of customer service and great prices continues to push us ahead of the competition."
PCPD LLC was named to the Fast 50 for the first time. Extensive growth in 2009 puts PCPD LLC on track to potentially make future lists as well. The 2009 Fast 50 list will be published in the Oct. 16 issue of Columbus Business First newspaper.

An October awards luncheon event, it attracts an audience of 600+ guests each year. Honorees know they have won an award by the day of the event, but are not told where they rank on the list until that information is revealed during the awards presentation.
