TekLinks has been named once again to the Birmingham Business Journal’s annual Birmingham 100 List for privately owned companies. In its June 13th print release, the BBJ revealed its rankings of the largest companies headquartered in Birmingham and having less than fifty percent ownership by an outside company. Representing a variety of industries, the companies on the list reported combined revenues in 2013 of more than $23.3 billion, which is down $2.7 billion from last year. The rankings of these major leading businesses reflect the strength of their ability to generate revenue in the wake of the past years’ recession. A recurring member of the Birmingham 100, TekLinks’ reported revenue of $101 million earned the company the 33rd spot this year (up from 40th in 2013).
“While not as accelerated as that of 2012, our growth in 2013 is still the result of ingenuity, teamwork, and an overwhelming commitment to our clients’ success,” says CEO Jim Akerhielm. “Our employees demonstrate these efforts daily, and I couldn’t be more proud of what TekLinks continues to do in, with, and for the Birmingham business community.”
