The Fast Growth 50, 2009

Our list of Alberta's fastest growing companies for the past year

Growing a business faster than its peers takes more than a fortuitous position in a hot sector, as this year’s list of growth leaders shows. It takes a unique product offering, scalability and effective financial controls. We ranked Alberta’s companies by growth in revenues, assets, profits, head count and other criteria over the past three years. The list we came up with represents small business as well as large business, serving world markets as well as local ones, operating in cities as well as smaller centres, and working in information technology, real estate development and manufacturing as well as business, financial and oilfield services. Collectively, they present a catalogue of best business practices. As we venture into uncertain times, it is companies like these that show the way forward.
