For the Third Consecutive Year, Zenith Aircraft Company Named One of Kansas/Western Missouri's Fastest Growing Technology Companies in Deloitte & Touche "FAST 50" Program

Kansas City, MO, October 26, 2001 --  For the third year in a row, Zenith Aircraft Company of Mexico, Missouri, has been named to Deloitte and Touche's prestigious "Fast 50" Program for the Kansas/Western Missouri region, a ranking of the fastest growing technology companies in the bi-state area. Rankings are based on the percentage of growth in revenues over the past five years.

"It's one thing to succeed when the economy is good, and another in today's uncertain economy," said Jeff Provost, Deloitte & Touche Kansas City Managing Partner. "We applaud Zenith Aircraft Company for their foresight and vision in excelling in the face of adversity." 

Zenith Aircraft Company is a kit aircraft manufacturer. The company develops, manufactures and sells kit aircraft that are assembled and flown by the builder/pilot. Zenith Aircraft ships its airplane kits to customers around the world in more than 40 countries.

Sebastien Heintz, president of Zenith Aircraft Company, credits his customers' loyalty for the company's continued success and growth: "Despite the relatively weak economy and the the aftermath of the September 11 attacks and its negative impact on aviation, sport pilots and kit builders have shown their resolve to move ahead and to fulfill their dream of building and flying their own aircraft."

Zenith Aircraft Company was previously named in the 2000 and 1999 "Fast 50" Programs for the Kansas/Western Missouri region, and the company was awarded the Missouri Industry of the Year Award (small business) in 1999. The award was presented by Associated Industries of Missouri, the Missouri Department of Economic Development, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the Mid-Missouri Business Journal.
