United Silicon Carbide, Inc. (UnitedSiC) has been named one of New Jersey’s 2014 50 Fastest Growing Companies. The award program produced by NJBIZ, New Jersey’s premiere business news publication, is presented by ParenteBeard, LLC, and sponsored by Comcast Business, Mass Mutual, UnitedHealthcare, Citi, and Archer & Greiner.

    The NJBIZ 50 Fastest Growing Companies awards program celebrates New Jersey’s most dynamic companies who progressively contribute to the success of the state’s economic growth and stability. To qualify, companies had to meet selection criteria that included a revenue size of or greater than $500,000 within the past two out of three years and growth in revenue over a three-year period, dating from fiscal year 2011 to 2013.

    Presenting sponsor, ParenteBeard, LLC calculated the nominations and then ranked the companies according to revenue growth over the three-year period. Both dollar and percentage increases were taken into consideration. NJBIZ and the program sponsors will honor this year’s 50 fastest-growing companies and announce their ranking live during an awards dinner and ceremony on Thursday, November 13, 2014, at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, New Jersey.
