Tech sector goes from strength to strength

David Taylor and Allen Houston from Latens Systems Ltd – a 2010 Fast 50 success story – join Deloitte Partner David Crawford (centre) to launch the 2011 Deloitte Fast 50 Technology Awards.
Northern Ireland’s technology industry has once again put in a strong performance in this year’s Deloitte Fast 50 Technology Programme with 14 local companies featuring amongst the fifty fastest growing technology companies in Ireland.

Those making the shortlist were Acksen Ltd; Aepona; Aetopia Ltd; Andor Technology PLC; Core Systems NI Ltd; Export Technologies; First Derivatives PLC; Leaf Consultancy; Marturion; Novosco; and Texthelp Systems Ltd. This group were joined by newcomers Etain Limited, Learning Pool and Seopa Ltd.

Final placing and total growth levels achieved will be revealed at the awards event in the Convention Centre in Dublin on Friday 21 October 2011.

David Crawford, partner in the Deloitte Belfast office, said: “It is extremely pleasing to see Northern Ireland companies once again putting in such strong performances despite the on-going difficult economic climate.

“Three companies, Andor Technology, Novosco and Texthelp Systems Ltd, all deserve a special mention as they have featured in the Fast 50 ranking each year since its inception in 1999. It’s fantastic to recognise these steadfast performances but also very exciting to welcome emerging companies such as Etain, Learning Pool and Seopa – proving the breadth of our local technology industry,” he added.

The programme, now in its 12th year, is open to all technology companies, headquartered in Ireland, north or south. The final ranking features technology companies that have demonstrated innovative strategies, sound management practices and marketplace vision, enabling them to achieve a high revenue growth.
