Power Distribution Inc. Named to Inc. Magazine's Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America

Power Distribution Equipment Leader Also Ranked 28th on Inc. 5000 Top Manufacturing Companies List in a Field of 3,900

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - December 21, 2010) - Power Distribution, Inc. (PDI), a leading provider of mission critical power distribution equipment for data centers, alternative energy, industrial, and commercial power markets, today announced that it has earned the #28 position on the Top Inc. 5000 Manufacturing Companies list and the #1496 position on the 2010 Inc. 5000, Inc. Magazine's annual ranking of the fastest growing private companies in America. 

"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."

Inc.'s 2010 list, more than ever, is a testament to the creativity, resilience, and tenacity of America's top entrepreneurs. Despite the fact that most of this year's measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year.

Attributing to PDI's continued success is its broad and innovative power distribution equipment product line. In the past year alone, PDI launched two new products, the PowerWave Bus System and the i-CON Modular Data Center. PDI is a recognized global leader in the power quality industry and has spoken at several industry events including DatacenterDynamics and 7x24 Exchange this year. PDI is known for offering innovative, cost-effective, flexible technology solutions to customers worldwide. 

"We are very pleased to be included in Inc. Magazine's list of fastest-growing companies in America," said Rob Sweaney, President and CEO, PDI. "We look forward to continuing our strong momentum into 2011, delivering mission critical, sustainable power distribution equipment to customers around the world."
