Group Mobile Makes the 2009 Inc. 5,000 List for the Third Year in a Row


Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Group Mobile, a provider of rugged, mobile and field-use computing products,announced today that they made the Inc. 5,000 list of fast growth companies in the U.S. for the third year in a row. The Inc. 5,000 list is a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, companies that make this list represent the backbone of the U.S. economy. The 2009 Inc. 5,000 list measures revenue growth from 2005 through 2008.

 "Despite the challenging economic conditions, Group Mobile continues to experience revenue growth every year. We believe this is a function of the continuing growth in field and vehicle-based work force automation, as well as Group Mobile's laser focus on customer satisfaction," said Group Mobile President Richard Lawson. "It seems whenever we gain a new customer, they continue to acquire their rugged mobile computing products from us. This repeat business has allowed us to prosper even in a period of reduced capital spending in both the private and public sectors. All the credit goes to our dedicated staff and their understanding of our customers' requirements. Our customers want to save money and become more efficient through automation and we know our job is to help make this happen."

 Group Mobile sells rugged, wireless mobile laptops, tablet PCs and handheld computers. Magnesium-cased ruggedized computers with shock-mounted hard disk drives operate problem-free for years and in less-than-ideal environmental in-field conditions. They are also designed to handle the constant vibrations associated with using a computer in a vehicle. "Today, most IT departments and CFO's have learned that paying a little more up front for a rugged, durable computer saves thousands of dollars over the life of that computer. Many have tried to use plastic, commercial portable computers but they discovered, due to constant down time, that it was not the right tool for the job," says Lawson.
