SEATTLE, WA – Aug. 24 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Inc. magazine today announced its 25th annual Inc. 500 ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the country, and technical staffing firm, Techlink Northwest, ranks No. 68 on the list. With three-year growth of 1,052 percent, Techlink Northwest was the only staffing firm in the Pacific Northwest to make the list.

Recognition for fast growth is nothing new for this upstart technical staffing firm, 2006 was the second year in a row they were listed by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of America’s fastest-growing new businesses and last fall they were ranked the 5th fastest growing Northwest company by the Puget Sound Business Journal.

Techlink Northwest’s (www.techlinknw.com) focus is on providing product development engineers on a temporary basis to technology companies in the Pacific Northwest and throughout the country.

“Our customers really appreciate our technical focus,” explains Donn Harvey, founder of Techlink Northwest, “we have a firm understanding of their technical requirements and can usually respond with the best person in the shortest amount of time. Our engineers benefit from challenging assignments and the flexibility that comes with temporary work.”

Tim Bruce, Vice President, explains “We continue to experience strong growth in the Pacific Northwest but the real buzz around the office is the exciting expansion we are seeing across the United States.” In January Techlink Northwest opened a national office to support clients in the Midwest and East coast.

“Continued expansion will be accomplished by maintaining our technical focus and replicating this business model with offices across the country,” explains Harvey. “Watch for some exciting announcements in the next six months,” he says with a grin.

The 2006 Inc. 500 list measures revenue growth from 2002 through 2005. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based, privately held independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2005, and have at least $600,000 in net sales in the base year.
