Aculight named one of 100 fastest-growing companies in Washington State

November 27--The company's growth also results in a December move to new corporate headquarters

November 27--Aculight Corp., a developer of innovative laser technologies, has been named to the Puget Sound Business Journal's "100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies" list for 2006. Rankings are based on companies' percentage revenue growth over the past three years. Thanks to this steady growth, Aculight will also move into a new corporate headquarters in December 2006.

Aculight's CEO Don Rich attributes the company's 78.3 percent revenue growth from 2003 to 2005 to setting and achieving aggressive goals. "Over the past several years Aculight has evolved from a research company into a product company," said Rich. "From the beginning of this transition we set clear, aggressive goals and communicated them to our customers. They know we'll apply that same determination to projects we're working on with them. This has, in turn, fueled our growth."

The company achieved an 81 ranking on the 2006 list, up from 86 on the list in 2005. It marks the sixth time Aculight has been named to the list. The award also follows two other wins this year--being named to the 2006 "50 fastest growing technology companies in Washington, Oregon and Idaho" by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, and Washintgon CEO magazine's 2006 "Top 50 High Tech Firms in Washington."
