Baxa Corp Now Ranks in Top 35 of Largest Private Companies in Denver Area
September 25, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsEnglewood, Colo. – Baxa Corporation has been named one of the Denver metro area's largest private companies in both the ColoradoBiz Magazine and Denver Business Journal (DBJ) annual rankings. In each publication, Baxa was in the Top 35 for 2008 – moving up five places to #32 in the DBJ (up from #37 in 2007) and #33 in ColoradoBiz (up from #38 in 2007).
Both Denver publications survey hundreds of area companies annually in order to identify the top performers. Participating companies are analyzed based on self-reported gross revenue over the past three years.
"I am pleased that Baxa was recognized again among such distinguished private companies. Baxa is a company that was bootstrapped with very little investment capital by our founders back in 1975," says Greg Baldwin, Chairman and CEO.."We have defied the odds to achieve consistent, profitable growth over three decades," he continues. "By taking a generational view, we have built Baxa organically through associate engagement, customer focus, and innovation. We are proud of the leading role we play in medication preparation and delivery worldwide."
Further, Baxa Corporation was named a finalist for the third consecutive year in the Best Companies to Work for in Colorado competition. Inc.com also included Baxa Corporation in its annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the country, the Inc 5000, for the second consecutive year.
Baxa Corporation provides systems and products that streamline pharmacy operations for oral liquid delivery, sterile IV preparation and mixing multi-source parenteral solutions. The company's products provide solutions for enhancing patient safety, improving drug preparation procedures and reducing the opportunity for medication errors.
