Advanced Battery Technologies (Greensboro, NC) was named a 2010 Fast 50 Company by the Business Journal. This award is presented to the 50 fastest-growing emerging companies in the Piedmont Triad. (The Piedmont Triad refers to the area between Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point, NC.) The Business Journal‘s Fast 50 Awards Program is the premiere business-growth competition in the Triad. Prior to becoming a Fast 50 company, the nominees undergo an auditing process to certify that they are indeed one of the fastest growing companies in the Triad. The Fast 50 awards recognize the Triad’s top performing privately held companies, as ranked using a formula that factors in the dollar and percentage change in revenues during a three-year period, between 2007 and 2009. In partnership with The Business Journal, Smith Leonard, one of the Triad’s largest accounting firms, oversees this process.
