Company Debuts at Number Six on List of Region’s Fastest Growing Private Companies

Following three years of exceptional growth, Transcend United Technologies has been recognized with a ranking of number six on the annual Philadelphia 100® list. With three-year sales growth of 566 percent, the Wayne, Pa.-based company made the annual ranking as one of the fastest growing, privately held companies in the Philadelphia region. This is Transcend United Technologies first time on the Philadelphia 100 list.

The Philadelphia 100 is an annual program conducted by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia, Philadelphia Business Journal and Wharton Small Business Development Center. Rankings for the 2011 Philadelphia 100 are based on a company’s three-year revenue growth rate from 2008 to 2010. This year’s ceremony was held on Oct. 27 at the Annenberg Center on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania in West Philadelphia.

“For more than two decades, I’ve admired and worked to emulate the remarkable achievement of the companies who have received this honor,” said Rick Hirsh, chief executive officer, Transcend United Technologies. “This honor, as well as the others we’ve received, validates that we are doing our job to help our customers simplify their IT and communications infrastructures for operational efficiency to meet their ever-changing business needs.”

Hirsh credits successfully identifying appropriate companies to acquire and integrate into Transcend United’s business model with the company’s 566 percent revenue growth. In late 2010, Transcend United joined forces with Spectrum Solutions and then, in early 2011, Transcend United merged with LiquidSpoke to create one of the nation’s fastest-growing system-integration and managed-services firms.
