PLANO, Texas â€“ Sept. 2, 2009 â€“ Layered Technologies, Inc. (Layered Tech), a leading worldwide provider of on-demand IT infrastructure, has ranked second on the 2009 Tech Titans Fast Tech Five-Year Listing by the Metroplex Technology Business Council (MTBC), the largest technology trade organization in Texas. The Tech Titans Fast Tech Award annually recognizes the fastest-growing technology companies in the DFW Metroplex, based on percentage of revenue growth during five-year or one-year periods.
Layered Tech ranked ahead of several other leading technology companies in North Texas, a result of the companyâ€™s explosive growth since 2004. To qualify for the ranking, companies must own proprietary technology; Layered Tech possesses a fully automated Web hosting platform called Astro that dramatically accelerates the availability and provisioning of servers for customers and channel partners alike.
â€œLayered Tech is proud to achieve such a high ranking on this prestigious annual list, which features many prominent DFW-area technology providers. The entire Layered Tech team has worked tirelessly to advance our services and offerings and become a leading global Web hosting provider, and being ranked second on the Tech Titan Fast Tech Five-Year List is a testament to our success,â€ said Layered Tech Founder and President Todd Abrams. â€œLayered Tech strives to meet and exceed customer needs, and our strategic business decisions and technological advancements have allowed us to achieve this goal. Our double-digit growth rate reflects the value that customers receive from Layered Tech and the flexible solutions we provide.â€
The ranking of the 2009 five-year and one-year list was announced at the annual Tech Titans/Fast Tech Awards Gala Event on Aug. 28, 2009 at the Renaissance Hotel Dallas-Richardson in Richardson, Texas. As a winner in the five-year growth category, Layered Tech is eligible for the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, which recognizes the 500 fastest-growing technology companies in the U.S. and Canada.
â€œThe Tech Titans/Fast Tech Awards provide the premier recognition of fast-growing, highly innovative companies that contribute to the vibrancy of the North Texas economy and make our region an exciting place to live and work,â€ said Cindi Keith, partner/technology marketing industry leader, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and co-chair of the MTBCâ€™s Tech Titans steering committee. â€œWe look forward to showcasing the true leaders in our industry and celebrating their hard work and creativity.â€
