Javelin Technologies makes 2016 PROFIT 500 list as one of the fastest growing IT companies in Canada

PROFIT and Canadian Business have unveiled the 28th annual list of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies

Oakville, Ontario - (October 25, 2016): Canadian Business and PROFIT have named Javelin Technologies, specialists in 3D design and 3D printing, as one of the Fastest-Growing Information Technology Companies on the PROFIT 500 list, which ranks Canadian businesses by their 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 PROFIT and Canadian Business. “These firms demonstrate what Canadian entrepreneurs can achieve, both at home and across the globe.”

Javelin Technologies is known across Canada for providing and supporting the full suite of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software, as well as the latest in Stratasys 3D printers. The company secured its place on the PROFIT 500 list because of a growth strategy that relies on ever-expanding product offerings that are essential and attractive tools in a variety of markets – markets made up of people who thrive on pushing the boundaries of design, engineering, and manufacturing.

“Just like the people at Javelin, our customers are not the type to sit still,” said Javelin’s Managing Director Ted Lee. “They want the most advanced and efficient design software because they aim high in their product development and business growth. They are the first to delve into the latest 3D printing technology because they see the potential for revolutionary creativity and change in their industries. Our customers definitely share this achievement with our team.”

New product offerings from Javelin include solutions for electrical design (schematics and PCB design) and product lifecycle management (PLM), as well as some unique industry applications for textile and composite design.  Javelin has also significantly expanded training offerings, with new courses and new delivery methods.

Lee also noted that to take advantage of ever-increasing adoption of high-tech tools in western Canada, Javelin expanded its operations in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg. After having been based only in Ontario and Atlantic Canada during its first 16 years in business, Javelin has opened up western markets in agriculture, oil and gas, water purification, manufacturing, film and television, healthcare, and education.

“You have to feel honoured to be on this list with so many other incredible Canadian companies,” said John Carlan, Javelin’s other Managing Director. “We pride ourselves on our Canadian roots and values and we always want to grow and challenge ourselves. Being recognized as part of a group that has created 30,180 new full-time equivalent positions over the past five years tells us we’re doing a lot of things right. This achievement reflects the strength of our products and the dedication of our team, as well as our relationship with our customers.”
