Marabu North America has been named as South Carolina's fastest-growing company in the small business category by SC Biz News.
SC Biz News publishes both regional and statewide business reports that serve senior level decision-makers across South Carolina. The announcement was made during the publisher's first annual Roaring 20s event held October 25, 2012 to honor the state's top 20 high-growth companies. For-profit companies headquartered in South Carolina were chosen and ranked according to growth and revenue. Company size was determined by gross revenue—small, $10 million and under; and large, more than $10 million.
Marabu North America qualified for the recognition as a small company with revenues of at least $500,000 each year for 2009, 2010, and 2011. SC Biz News said that this formula leveled the playing field between smaller and larger companies within both the small and large category. Points were awarded according to dollar and percentage increases in revenue generated from South Carolina operations from 2010 to 2011.
"This is a huge honor," said Marabu North America General Manager Bob Keller, "we are thrilled to be recognized as a leader in such a substantial way by the South Carolina business community."
