BOULDER, COLORADO, June 3, 2010 – Last week, hundreds of companies gathered at the Hotel Boulderado in celebration of their collective success. The Boulder County Business Report (BCBR) named Stratom as the number one fastest growing company with revenues over $2 million after they achieved a remarkable 498% growth in revenue between 2007 and 2009. Each year the BCBR recognizes the top 100 fastest growing, privately held companies in Boulder and Broomfield Counties in two revenue categories – over $2 million and under $2 million. This is the 4th year in a row that Stratom has been included on the Mercury 100 list, and just last year Stratom was recognized as the 4th fastest growing company in the under $2 million category.
“It is such an honor to receive this award on behalf of our talented team. This growth means that we will have more resources available to protect our American Warfighter to the best of our abilities through the use of engineering and technological capabilities,” says Stratom’s president and CEO Mark Gordon. Stratom leverages expertise in robotics and automation, sensor integration, and embedded control systems to achieve this objective.
A major contributor to Stratom’s recent growth was the award of a contract for Semi-Autonomous Manipulation and Sensing by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) SSC Pacific, a division of the U.S. Navy. This summer, Stratom engineers will complete the design of this tool changer for an unmanned ground vehicle. This innovation will allow soldiers to more efficiently and effectively identify, disarm and dispose of potential threats such as improvised explosive devices (IEDs) while remaining safely out of harm’s way.
