IWCO Direct One Of Minnesota’s Fastest Growing Private Companies
Press release from the issuing company
Chanhassen, Minn. (May 28, 2008) - IWCO Direct, the nation's leading provider of integrated direct mail production services and marketing solutions, was ranked as the fifth fastest growing private company in Minnesota during the past three fiscal years by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal. The company experienced annualized three-year growth from fiscal 2004 through fiscal 2007 of 22.5% according the report. Revenue in 2007 was $281 million, which placed IWCO Direct as the 78th largest private company in Minnesota.
IWCO Direct's growth is the result of its integrated direct mail platform that provides customers with increased postage savings, speed to market, and response rates. IWCO Direct further enhanced its service offerings in April with the launch of AMP, the company's automated marketing program platform. AMP was developed to meet the growing demand for specialized direct mail programs such as trigger mailings and response management services. IWCO Direct also anticipates continuing its geographic expansion, and will look to add a presence in the western U.S., likely in 2009.
"This recognition is a testament to the dedication of our employees and the loyalty of our customers," said Jim Andersen, IWCO Direct president and CEO. "We expect our new service offering, combined with our integrated strategy to offer even greater value to our customers and deliver strong financial results."
