Twenty local companies in four categories based on 2015 revenue were named as part of PBN’s fifth Fastest-Growing & Innovative Companies recognition program.

In addition to the 20 companies listed here in alphabetical order, 10 companies were judged to be the region’s most innovative, based on applications submitted. All 30 companies were honored at an event on Sept. 21 to be held at the Crowne Plaza Providence-Warwick.
