Boxlight Corporation Honored As One Of The Fastest Growing Companies In America
Poulsbo, WA, July 14, 1999 -- BOXLIGHT Corporation, the world's leading distributor of presentation equipment, services and training, was again recognized, by Inc. magazine, as one of the 500 fastest growing private companies in America.
This is the fifth year in a row that this Poulsbo, Washington-based company has appeared on the distinguished Inc. 500 list. Winners are chosen and ranked by the magazine based on sales growth over a five-year period. BOXLIGHT was the only distributor of projection technology to be named to the list.
BOXLIGHT received its honors during the Inc. 500 conference and awards event, held in Nashville, TN, from June 17-19, 1999. It was during these ceremonies that the company was ushered into Inc. magazine's "Hall of Fame."
The Inc. magazine "Hall of Fame" is comprised of companies that have appeared on the Inc. 500 list at least five times. This year, BOXLIGHT was one of only four companies given this exclusive distinction. In the magazine's 17-year history, only 50 corporations have earned this privilege.
In attendance at the presentation ceremony and related events, were Herb Myers, BOXLIGHT president and CEO, and the company's eight member management team.
"In a remarkably short time, our talented management staff has made BOXLIGHT the point of reference for computer-based presentation equipment. We are truly honored to accept these prestigious awards," said Myers.
During the five-year period from 1993-98, BOXLIGHT has increased its revenue from $6.6 million, in 1993, to $52.4 million in 1998. Additionally, the number of employees has risen from 16 to 95.
BOXLIGHT 's meteoric financial growth reflects the company¹s drive to stay at the very forefront of the industry. The company offers the most innovative, highest-quality technology on the market backed by technical support services that far surpass industry norms.
In April 1999, BOXLIGHT enhanced their website to give customers the option of purchasing on-line. The company's new motto "Total Presentation Solutions Online" aptly describes the newly designed interactive site. Customers can shop at their own pace, obtain information about BOXLIGHT 's vast line of presentation equipment and services and receive online technical support.
BOXLIGHT was founded in 1986 by the husband and wife team of Herb and Sloan Myers. This innovative company, with 24 distribution points worldwide, has become the leading supplier of presentation equipment by selecting the top designs, the latest innovations and the most refined products available from the industry¹s most trusted manufacturers.
The company sells products under the BOXLIGHT brand name as well as the best products from manufacturers such as InFocus, Sony, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Sanyo, Hitachi and Epson.
