Silicon Mechanics Continues Fourth Consecutive Year of Rapid GrowthExceeds all sales goals thus far in 2015, average annual growth rate of over 27 percent lands company on fourth consecutive Inc. 5000
BOTHELL, WA, August 31, 2015 -- Silicon Mechanics, a leading provider of servers, storage and high-performance computing solutions to the world's most innovative organizations, today announced that its average annual growth rate of over 27 percent, and four-year cumulative annual growth rate of 111 percent, has helped position the company on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Companies for the fifth time.
“In order for Silicon Mechanics to keep pace with the growth we are experiencing, we must focus not only on growing technical competence, but on building a great work culture full of challenges and opportunities for employees,” says Silicon Mechanics President/CEO Eva Cherry. “Talent is at a premium in the Seattle Technology Corridor, and the leadership team we have built gives us a strong foundation to attract and retain the talent we need for continued growth.”
Moving into the second half of 2015, positive growth trends and key additions to the executive team from 2014 are helping to solidify the company’s rapid expansion. Influential additions to the Silicon Mechanics executive team include: COO/CTO Daniel Chow, who joined the company last year and was recently announced as a member of the Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 under 40 Club; and Vice President of Sales and Support David McCauley, who was hired within the last nine months. Each has had a dramatic effect on the company‘s sales, strategy and structure.
Silicon Mechanics’ future growth opportunities revolve around several technology trends in key areas, including HPC, cloud, virtualization and storage. In addition, custom manufacturing for small to mid-size businesses (SMB) continues to present a dynamic opportunity for growth as Silicon Mechanics brings its core competence, value proposition, and services in supply chain manufacturing to solution providers seeking life cycle management of their appliances.
Supporting the SMB space with its engineering expertise, capacity to scale, defined build processes, and supply chain management experience offers quality assurance to companies looking for a value-added partner to support their growth plans. Silicon Mechanics will release more news regarding its custom manufacturing services in the coming months. In the meantime, it is focused on finishing the remainder of the year with the same growth momentum.
“Our dedicated ‘Expert included’ approach of connecting with our customers before, during and after the sale continues to resonate,” said McCauley. “Whether big or small, simple or complex, our dedication to our customer base and working to ensure smooth implementation is succeeding. In fact, I’d say we are just reaching our stride now.”
