Toronto, ON (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
For the second consecutive year, Crawford Technologies has today been recognized as one of Canada’s top technology companies in the annual Branham300 listing. The Branham300 is the definitive listing of Canada’s top publicly traded and privately held Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies, as ranked by revenues.
CrawfordTech has also made the Branham300 ‘Top 20 Movers & Shakers’ listing, ranking in at #16. The ‘Movers and Shakers’ list represents companies that, through remarkable performance, showed the most significant increases in their rankings compared to last year's Branham listing.
“It is truly an honor to be listed alongside so many great companies for the second year in a row,” said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies.
“Credit goes to the entire team of incredible employees. Together, we have built a solid suite of solutions to address the needs of the global multi-channel customer communications management market.”
As a well-respected annual ranking of both publicly-traded and privately-held companies, the Branham300 receives tremendous attention with comprehensive details on its website, http://www.branham300.com. Recognition on the Branham300 listing has provided many up-and-coming firms with increased market exposure and brand awareness, while in many cases also opening the door to new business opportunities, both domestically and abroad.
“While Canada’s ICT sector advanced only slightly in 2012, it did achieve a milestone in setting a new revenue record of $83B for the Top 250. When you factor in the performance of Blackberry, Canada’s top technology firm, and its decline of 7% in FY2012, the industry overall actually performed much better, with an overall growth rate of 3.58%,” said Wayne Gudbranson, President and CEO of Branham Group.
“Another factor that has also had a major impact over the last year is the number of Canadian tech acquisitions. Leading companies such as Zarlink Semiconductor, Miranda Technologies, Algorithmics, Gennum, and March Networks are now under foreign ownership and are no longer on the list. This continues to be a major trend year over year. Looking forward, Branham expects the industry to build on its 2012 performance and post strong single-digit growth in 2013.”
