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

Kansas City, MO, October, 2000 --  For the second consecutive year, 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.

Zenith Aircraft Company's president, Sebastien Heintz, credits the strong economy, new products and technology, continued customer satisfaction and a large export market with the company's continued growth over the past five years. He said, "While we don't really consider ourselves a [high] technology company, we can certainly credit high tech as a major contributor to our growth: The market for our kit aircraft is spread throughout the world and advances in high-tech communications allow us to communicate with customers in ways that were not possible just a few years ago."  

"The internet and e-mail has allows us to reach otherwise isolated markets around the world," said Heintz. "Without high tech, it would be nearly impossible for us to reach these customers." 

"In an era where technology companies come and go like shooting stars, making the Deloitte and Touche Fast 50 is a testament to a company's leadership and its ability to not only have the right solution for that moment in time, but also the vision that allows growth over five years." said Jeff Provost, Deloitte & Touche Kansas City Managing Partner. "Zenith Aircraft Company has proven that they have the right stuff to succeed, and we at Deloitte & Touche salute its accomplishments."

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

Zenith Aircraft Company was named in the 1999 "Fast 50" Program for the Kansas/Western Missouri region.  Also in 1999, Zenith Aircraft Company was awarded the Missouri Industry of the Year Award (small business). 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.
