South Plainfield, NJ -- November 25, 2013 -- Leading global genomics service company GENEWIZ, Inc., was honored by NJBIZ as the 27th fastest growing company in New Jersey at an awards ceremony on Tuesday evening, November 19.
Awarded annually by premiere business news publication NJBIZ, the Fifty Fastest Growing Companies celebrates New Jersey’s most dynamic companies who actively contribute to the state’s economic growth and stability. In 2011, GENEWIZ was recognized as #28 among New Jersey’s Fifty Fastest Growing Companies.
"Winners of the 2013 NJBIZ New Jersey’s Fifty Fastest Growing Companies awards have made the most of opportunities," remarked Thomas F. Curtin, NJBIZ Publisher. "Despite the challenges of the last few years, these companies have branched into new markets, broadened their product lines, or reinvented themselves."
Indeed, GENEWIZ broadened its product lines throughout 2013, with the introduction of GENEWIZ OncoGxOne™ cancer panels and the 16S MetaVx™ sequencing assay. Further, GENEWIZ continued to branch into expanded markets in 2013 with its accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP). CAP accreditation enables GENEWIZ to provide comprehensive solutions for clients working in clinical environments, thus enabling delivery of genomic testing results that will ultimately lead to better diagnoses and effective treatments.
Curtin declared, "Companies making up New Jersey’s Fifty Fastest have proven their ability to sustain growth overtime, and that is why I congratulate all of them, their leaders, and their employees."
"It is an honor to be recognized by NJBIZ once again as one of the Fifty Fastest Growing Companies," commented Steve Sun, GENEWIZ, Inc. CEO. "As our company grows, I am proud that we are able to not only create new job opportunities in New Jersey, but also attract talented, motivated, and dedicated employees who are committed to accelerating scientific discovery, as well as to developing and delivering innovative solutions for translational medicine and healthcare."
