According to a an article in the September edition of Business NH Magazine, there are “signs of economic hope” in the New Hampshire economy. This is exciting news for anyone doing business in the Northeast.
We’d like to take a few moments to recognize a few of those companies, and thank them for their past and continuing business.
20 Fastest Growing Companies
Three of our clients experienced growth large enough to merit recognition on the “20 Fastest Growing Companies on the Private 100″ list including two members from our SIGs including Novel Iron Works, Inc., who reported 22.29% growth, and New England Wood Pellet, LLC, who landed at the number three position with 55.12% growth, both over a 3-year average. New England Wood Pellet’s CEO Mark Wilson attributes his growth to the increasing cost of oil for heat, according to Business New Hampshire Magazine, Wilson states: “People want to find alternatives to heating oil.”
In the number one position, Dyn reported a 70.57% growth over that same three year period, putting them at number 76 on the Top 100 list. With technology growing in to a more and more important part of the way people do business today, it’s no wonder Dyn has seen such astronomical growth. With nearly 20 data centers worldwide, CEO Jeremy Hitchcock remarks, “We take the hard part, basically that crucial role of getting the data where it needs to be for our clients, and make it happen with speed and reliability,” according to Business New Hampshire Magazine.
More Good News For NH Economy
Several members of the Top 100 Private Companies plan to add to the economy with the creation of jobs, to the tune of 1,080 new positions opening up within 42 NH companies. We’d like to congratulate Dyn for their mention; Dyn has indicated that they intend to add about 80 jobs in the upcoming year. This is indeed exciting news for New Hampshire employees.
