Seven Straight Years on Growth 500 List
Spiria once again made the list of Canada’s 500 fastest-growing companies. This is the seventh straight year that Spiria is featured in this prestigious list of highly successful companies.
MONTREAL, 13 September 2018 /CNW Telbec/ — Today, Canadian Business and Maclean’s released their 30th annual ranking of Canada’s 500 fastest-growing companies. For the 7th year in a row, Spiria made this prestigious list of highly successful companies. “Our main corporate objective is to provide our clients with an outstanding experience by combining unparalleled expertise, quality service and local presence. This is essential in maintaining our continuous growth year after year,” said Stéphane Rouleau, CEO of Spiria. “We will continue on the very successful path of pursuing external growth by extending to new markets, as we did with our Toronto acquisition. We will also relentlessly promote and showcase the exceptional know-how and proven skills of our teams to gain the trust of new major clients, as we did this year with Caterpillar, Epic Games, Skillable and Trilliant.”
Spiria, a company that specializes in developing custom digital solutions, experienced a very successful year in 2018. In early January, the company announced its acquisition of Toronto-based DevBBQ, a team of 20 experts in mobile- and Web-based app development. In March, it celebrated its 15th anniversary, an event that enabled them to imagine the future of the company as a team. Then in May, Spiria was honoured with the M&A Club award for “Transaction of the Year, $2M - $10M” at its annual Awards Gala in Montreal. Spiria received this award in recognition of last December’s merger and acquisition of Toronto’s DevBBQ, which became Spiria Toronto.
Today, with this 7th appearance on the Growth 500 listing, Spiria continues its path to success. Spiria’s growth is the result of sustained client interest in quality and custom IT solutions that support their digital transformations.
“The companies on the 2018 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today” says Deborah Aarts, Growth 500 program manager. “As we celebrate 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that entrepreneurship is healthier than ever in this country.”
