Press Release - Spiria on the PROFIT 500 List for Fifth Year in a Row
Five Straight Years on PROFIT 500 List
With a five-year growth of 477%, Spiria (formerly Innobec Technologies) is in 145th place on the PROFIT 500 list of Canada’s 500 fastest-growing enterprises. This is the fifth year in a row that Spiria has made it onto this prestigious list of most successful companies. “We have every intention of keeping Spiria on PROFIT 500’s list. We are committed to growth for the years to come, and are currently looking at acquisition opportunities that will allow us to extend our reach to new markets and right across North America”, said Stéphane Rouleau, President and CEO. “But regardless of what happens in terms of external growth, we are upbeat about the future thanks to our returning clients who keep coming back to us when they want a quality job done”.
The PROFIT 500 list, produced for 28 years running by PROFIT and Canadian Business magazines, ranks Canadian enterprises by five-year revenue growth. “Companies become a part of the PROFIT 500 through innovative thinking, smart strategy and sheer grit,” says James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of both magazines.
Innobec Technologies changed its name to Spiria in January in order to support its North-American expansion and contribute to its objective of becoming an international player in software development.
Spiria’s growth is rooted in companies’ appetite for investing in Cloud and mobile platforms. Its client list now includes various divisions of Autodesk: Media and Entertainment, Civil Engineering and Infrastructure, Architecture and Construction. Its newer clients include startup Lightspeed, Broadsign, the CSN, as well as Echelman, for Internet of Things and mobile and Web applications.
Founded in 2003, Spiria employs over one hundred people at two different sites (Montreal and Gatineau). It specializes in bespoke software development for any platform. It services enterprises and organisations such as Autodesk, Acosta, Garda World, Square Enix, Université Laval, Broadsign, PBSC, Labatt, Shaw, etc.
