Loughborough, UK – 18th November 2016

CommAgility, a developer of hardware and software for wireless applications, announced today that it ranked in 45th position in the 2016 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a listing of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the UK.

Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over the last four years. CommAgility grew 400 per cent during this period. CommAgility has previously appeared in the Fast 50 in 2012 and 2013.

David Cobb, lead partner, Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 and Technology Fast 500 EMEA Programmes, said: “The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 gives great profile to technology companies and is internationally recognised as being one of the most important business awards in the sector.”

Edward Young, managing director at CommAgility, said: “This latest award recognises our achievement in developing advanced hardware and software products, and successfully selling them around the world.”

The Fast 50 ranking adds to the company’s recent success when it was listed in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100, as well as CommAgility’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation received earlier in 2016. The company also received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, in 2013.
