Torch Technologies and nLogic Ranked on Inc. 5000 List for 12th and 9th Consecutive Year, Respectively

Huntsville, AL – August 16, 2018
For the 12th and 9th consecutive years, respectively, Torch Technologies and nLogic have been ranked on the Inc. 5000.  Torch was ranked at #3,397 this year with revenue growth of 113 percent in the three-year measurement period. nLogic was ranked at #2,350 this year with revenue growth of 185 percent in the three-year measurement period.  They are the only two Huntsville-based companies to have been on the Inc. 5000 list nine or more consecutive years.
The Fastest Growing Private Companies in America recognition is no mere coincidence as Torch and nLogic share a common pedigree. Both are 100% employee-owned companies headquartered in Huntsville. nLogic (formerly Torch Systems) spun out of Torch Technologies in 2009. They retained a common corporate philosophy based on technical excellence, business integrity and community support.  While Torch and nLogic occupy different business segments, they have each received several of the same prestigious national and local awards for business excellence.  Both companies have received the following awards: Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces Award, Winning Workplaces/Inc. Magazine’s Top Small Company Workplaces Award, Inc. Magazine’s Hire Power Award, Principal’s 10 Best Companies for financial security, the Better Business Bureau of North Alabama’s Torch Award for marketplace ethics, and the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Year.
nLogic CEO Tim Thornton remarked, “This recognition would not be possible without the hard work, dedication, and professionalism of all the nLogic employee-owners.  I am grateful to Torch’s CEO, Bill Roark, who has served as my mentor.  I owe a huge debt of gratitude for the foundations of excellence he established at Torch, and that we proudly carry on at nLogic.”  Bill Roark, CEO and co-founder of Torch Technologies, stated, “At Torch, we value our commitment to our employee-owners, to our customers, and to our community.  I am proud of what our employee-owners have accomplished, and I am proud of the success that nLogic employee-owners now enjoy.  Although our companies are now on different paths, it is satisfying to see our common approach to business continues to result in success for the employee-owners at both companies.”
