Awards

Evolve has frequently been recognized by local and national media leaders for being one of America's fastest-growing private companies. Between 2008 and 2010, it ranked among companies that had grown by at least 25 percent, and accomplished this in spite of the fact that it launched during an economic downturn in 1999.

Evolve established quickly and earned distinction for its quality products and rapid growth. Here are just two significant awards:

 

Silicon Valley Business Journal

"Keep your day job as long as you can," suggests Noreen King when asked her advice on starting a company at a 2011 Silicon Valley Business Journal awards ceremony. Although Evolve, her company grew rapidly in its first few years, King wasn't joking as she herself had to work tirelessly in support of her business as well as her family. At some point, however, King knew what the greatest entrepreneurs usually have to learn: you must take the plunge and cut ties to old jobs, throw it all in to create a successful start-up that fills a distinct niche and has what it takes to grow.

Inc. Magazine

Evolve's reputation as a nationally and internationally recognized leader in product manufacturing has earned it Inc. Magazine's "500 Fastest Growing Companies" Award on three-separate occasions. Evolve's founder and CEO, Noreen King, commented on the company’s outstanding growth, achieved through initiative, persistence, and plain hard work. Interviewed by Amy Gunderson ("How I Did It: Noreen King, CEO, Evolve Manufacturing Technologies, " Inc. September 2006), King says: "The products we build are complicated." That understatement is significant in light of Evolve's willingness to tackle just about anything to bring high-quality products to their customers in spite of extreme challenges.
