Gigpro was named South Carolina’s Fastest Growing Company in the 50 Fastest Growing Companies competition. South Carolina’s 50 Fastest Growing Companies competition is the annual ranking of the Palmetto State’s 50 most dynamic and successful companies.
This year’s recipients were honored at a luncheon at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center Oct. 9, where Barbara Melvin, president and CEO of South Carolina Ports, was the keynote speaker. The event recognizes an exceptional and diverse assembly of businesses from across the state among its Top 50 winners.
To be eligible for the SC 50 Fastest Growing Companies Award, the company must be headquartered in South Carolina and, be in business for at least three years and show revenues of more than $3 million in the last fiscal year. The companies are selected using a calculation based on year-over-year growth of revenue and employee headcount over the last three years.
Once companies submit their data, they are notified of whether they placed in the competition, but rankings are not announced until the recognition luncheon.
Integrated Media Publishing, publisher of Greenville Business Magazine, Columbia Business Monthly, and Charleston Business Magazine, partners with The Capital Corporation to honor these South Carolina companies. The program is in its 22nd year.
Partner sponsors are Prisma Health; Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, LLP; and Wells Fargo Bank.
For the first 20 years, the program honored the 25 Fastest Growing Companies, but the list was expanded to 50 companies two years ago.
“We are proud to honor these South Carolina companies that make such an important impact on business and quality of life in our state,” said Lori Coon, publisher of Greenville Business Magazine, Columbia Business Monthly, and Charleston Business Magazine. “We congratulate all of honorees for their accomplishments.”
In addition to the 50 Fastest Growing Companies, awards were also given for Excellence in Business.
The Employee Retention Award went to Chancel Construction, where the average full-time employee has served for 23 years.
The Growth in Revenues Award was presented to Jordon Construction, which demonstrated a sixfold increase from 2020 to 2022.
The Customer/Client Retention Award went to CF Evans Construction LLC, which has an average of eight years with its top 10 customers.
The Community Involvement Award was presented to Harper General Contractors. More than 100 employees participated in company-supported philanthropic activities in 2022.
The South Carolina Economic Impact Award, presented by BMW Manufacturing, recognizes companies in the Palmetto State whose activities have produced extraordinary results. This award honors companies from all regions of the state and across multiple industries for their outstanding contributions to the South Carolina economy. This year’s award was presented to ZF Transmissions, which is headquartered in Gray Court.
A new award was presented this year, the inaugural C. Dan Adams Lifetime Achievement Award, named for the founder of The Capital Corporation. This award was given to Bob Hughes, chairman of Hughes Development.
