PORTLAND, Maine, Oct. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tilson, a national network deployment and IT professional services firm, announced today that it has again earned a place on the Engineering News Record (ENR) Top 600 list of Specialty Contractors. From #560 in 2017, to #481 in 2018, Tilson's 138 spot rise to #343 in 2019 reflects the company's rapid growth this year as a national turnkey solution provider. Tilson was also recently recognized for the 9th year in a row on the Inc. 5000 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies, rising 23 spots in its ranking to position #1773. Tilson's growth on both lists is a direct reflection of its work expanding to meet increasing customer demands for 5G small cell and fiber networks across the country as the telecommunications market shows no sign of slowing.
"Dedication, innovation, and a very talented group of people are at the core of Tilson's continued success," said Joshua Broder, Tilson CEO. "Being recognized for a fourth year as a Top 600 Specialty Contractor demonstrates the value of our design-build, turnkey solutions and our competitive advantage in the industry. At the root of any recognition are the Tilson employees who work tirelessly to support our clients and deliver the best quality outcomes."
"The strength of the current market can be seen in the results of this year's ENR Top 600 Specialty Contractors list," writes Gary Tulaxz, who authored the flagship story with ENR's release of the list. "As a group, the Top 600 generated revenue of $135.20 billion in 2018, up 9.0% over $124.04 billion in 2017 and a 20.1% hike from $112.72 billion the year before. Revenue for the Top 600 now has risen 103.9%—more than doubling—since the market recovery began in 2011."
