The Los Angeles Business Journal named Pelican Products Inc., a leader in the design and manufacture of advanced lighting systems and hard cases, to its list of Los Angeles County's Fastest Growing Private Companies.
The Torrance, Calif.-based company ranked No. 25 in Los Angeles County overall and second in the $100 million-plus revenue category.
The award honors companies that have been based in Los Angeles County and established before Jan. 1, 2007. They must be privately owned and cannot be a subsidiary. Companies must have at least $5 million in revenue for 2009 and are ranked by revenue growth from 2007-09.
"We are honored to receive this recognition from such a well-respected publication," said Pelican president and CEO Lyndon Faulkner. "This award validates our efforts and spurs us on to continue to create and manufacture the toughest and most reliable products around."
Born in 1976 in a Torrance garage, Pelican has since become a global company, making lighting systems and cases domestically and operating internationally in 12 countries.
