PCI Group Recognized as a Top 50 Fastest Growth Company by the Charlotte Business Journal
Thursday, December 14th, 2017
PCI Group was recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the Charlotte area at the Charlotte’s Business Journal Fast 50 Award ceremonies. Each year, the CBJ honors the fastest-growing companies in the Charlotte region. This year, the event was held at Hilton Charlotte City Center on Thursday evening.
CBJ President and Publisher Kevin Pitts highlighted the space-travel theme of the evening by walking onstage in a spacesuit and helmet. Music from “Close Encounters,” “The Jetsons” and “Star Wars” and songs such as “Rocket Man” and “Man on the Moon” contributed to the other-worldly feel of the event. As a whole, the Fast 50 companies crushed both revenue and employment numbers for the year. Combined, they employ 4,000 and have annual revenues of $500 million, Pitts says.
Among the companies recognized, PCI Group was named as the 13th fastest growth company, with an impressive 83% growth over the prior year. The growth achieved by PCI Group is even more impressive considering many of its competitors in the print industry have seen double-digit declines and some who have gone out of business over the past decade.
The company, in its 47th year, has a long-standing track of entrepreneurial success, civic responsibility and leadership. PCI Group’s recent success has been attributed to strategic investments in security and compliance, lean manufacturing and state of industry technologies to enhance its production capabilities. These investments and the company’s drive to succeed have resulted in PCI Group being awarded multi-year contracts with some of the largest companies in America.
We made an important decision in 2008 to relocate our business to the Charlotte area and we feel fortunate to operate in such a thriving business community. The many talented people that have joined our company and our association with our community business partners have benefited our business in countless ways. We are truly honored to be recognized by the Charlotte Business Journal as part of the Fast 50 and we want to thank the Charlotte Business Journal for recognizing us and congratulate the other companies on the list, said President, Chris Kropac, Jr.
