Apprion Wins Red Herring Top 100 North America Award

Company Recognized as One of the Leading Private Technology Companies in North America

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - Apprion, the leader of Industrial Wireless Application Systems for the process manufacturing industry, announced that it is a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies in North America, celebrating the startups' innovations and technologies across their respective industries. The awards were presented in Hollywood, California during a ceremony where 200 finalists were honored and the top 100 received the award.

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Apprion embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Apprion should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."

Red Herring's editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.

"We are honored to be selected to the Red Herring Top 100 North America. This is a great accomplishment for us," said Doug Donzelli, Apprion CEO. "Apprion is positioned for more success as industrial facilities adopt our industrial wireless application systems and services for their safety, security, environmental and performance needs. So far, 2011 has been a strong year and awards like this one validate that we are on the path to great success."

Red Herring's Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
