Press release from the issuing company
Chanhassen, MN (October 28, 2005) — IWCO Direct, a leading national provider of integrated direct mail solutions, was chosen as one of the Twin Cities’ fastest growing private companies by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal’s “Growth 50” project. The study ranked Twin Cities-based private companies with the highest revenue growth over the past three years. IWCO Direct’s revenue rose 66.5 percent from 2002 through 2004, increasing from $91.7 million to $152.7 million during that span. In 2005 IWCO Direct anticipates revenues to exceed $200 million.
The company’s growth reflects its ability to differentiate itself in the marketplace by offering integrated direct mail services that provide its customers increased postage savings, speed to market, and response rates.
