World leader in aquatic play solutions, Vortex Aquatic Structures International, has been included in the PROFIT 500 list for the second year running.
Canada’s fastest-growing companies are ranked according to their five-year revenue growth.
The 2016 list, compiled by Canada’s best-selling business publication, Canada Business, and media brand, PROFIT, has ranked Vortex 72 places higher than last year, after showing accelerated revenue growth of 131% over five years.
“Companies become a part of the PROFIT 500 through innovative thinking, smart strategy and sheer grit, ” reported James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. “These firms demonstrate what Canadian entrepreneurs can achieve, both at home and across the globe.”
Stephen Hamelin, President and CEO of Vortex, described this second consecutive appearance in the list as a significant achievement and said it was a tribute to the company’s employees, partners and customers:
“Our growth has been fuelled by broadening our reach into new vertical and geographical markets while enhancing our North American channel. We also acquired AquaBlue, which allowed us to expand our product offering with a broad range of waterslides. We continue to innovate, developing the kinds of designs that delight families and efficient water management systems that reduce costs and are eco-friendly.”
Vortex boasts over 6000 installations worldwide and has won a number of awards for its aquaplay solutions including the 2016 MVP from Aquatics International Magazine for Water Journey™; a Good Design Award by the Chicago Athenaeum for Water Journey; and a Leading Edge Award from the World Water Parks Association.
