Orbital Research Ltd. has been included in the 2020 Ready to Rocket list in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) category — this prestigious list identifies companies with the highest growth potential and acknowledges their expertise and innovation within the industry.
This award recognizes Orbital’s outstanding performance within the ICT sector, providing customized, high-performing SATCOM components to be used in military and emergency services communication. Orbital’s top priority is to provide customers with rock-solid products that ensure reliable communication, even in remote areas and under extreme conditions.
Reg Nordman, Managing Partner, Rocket Builders, stated that when the Ready to Rocket companies are selected, those companies that have best matched technical innovation with market opportunity are those being identified. Orbital Research is an excellent example of the right technology for the right customers at the right time.
The VP of Business Development, Trevor Hiebert, stated that Orbital Research is honored to be recognized as one of the leading technology companies in British Columbia. For the last 18 years, the Ready to Rocket lists have accurately identified private companies that are most likely to experience significant growth and make a strong impact in BC’s technology sector within the coming year. The average growth rate from the 2019 list was over 40 percent, with 31 companies seeing double digit growth and 12 exceeding 100 percent growth.
During the current global pandemic, Orbital products are supporting troops and emergency workers in military mobile shelters and medical facilities. “Reliable communication during this time is of utmost importance,” said Hiebert. “We are proud to provide products that can perform under emergency conditions.”
