Aberdeen, NC (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
For more than 30 years, Inc. has celebrated the fastest-growing private companies in America. To rank among the 2012 Inc. 5000, companies had to thrive through three of the toughest years this economy has seen in decades. The Inc. 500/5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony is an annual three day event to celebrate the achievements of the companies that appear on Inc. magazine’s prestigious ranking of America’s fastest-growing privately held companies.
This year, Meridian, a North Carolina-based self-service software and kiosk company, made the 2012 Inc. 5000 list for the fastest growing privately held companies. Meridian’s CEO and Founder, Chris Gilder states, "We have seen tremendous growth over the years, this year being no exception. Our software application solutions are best in class and have propelled Meridian to the forefront of self-service. We are honored to be included amongst such notable companies as Oracle, Pandora, Facebook, Intuit and others.”
Inc. Magazine will honor Meridian and other privately-held companies during a three-day event in Phoenix, Arizona at the Marriott Desert Ridge. The celebration starts on October 3rd with a morning golf tournament and commences with the awards ceremony on October 5th.
When asked about the secret to business success, Gilder states, “Meridian’s concept to completion process allows us to maintain control of self-service technology from the initial concept, design, engineering and software development to the manufacturing in our Aberdeen, NC facility. Our team focuses on quality and innovation in the self-service industry, and we have a world class team.”
