Demand for Low Latency Ethernet Switch Chips Boosts Company Growth Rate to Earn #6 Ranking for Computer Hardware
CALABASAS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 27, 2010 — Fulcrum Microsystems today announced it has been named to the Inc. Magazine list of fastest growing computer hardware companies. In the U.S., Fulcrum reported a three-year (2006-2009) growth rate of 487 percent, propelling it to the number six position on the computer hardware list, as well as qualifying it for the overall Inc. 5000 fastest growing U.S. companies list.
First introduced in 1982, the Inc. Magazine 500/5000 list has become a distinguished editorial award and a celebration of entrepreneurial innovation.
“We are very pleased to have made the Inc. Magazine fastest growing computer hardware companies list,” said Mike Zeile, president and COO of Fulcrum Microsystems. “Despite the uncertain economic climate, our unique low-latency 10GB Ethernet switch technology has provided quality and value for our customers, spearheading consistently growing demand. In fact, we expect our revenues to increase substantially over the next several years since we presently have more than 200 Ethernet design wins in the pipeline, with less than one-third in production. Consequently, there is plenty of revenue growth ahead of us as the remaining two-thirds reach production, and future designs are added.”
