Layton Construction Co., Inc. was recenlty ranked among the 50 fastest growing companies in the state of Utah as part of Utah Business magazine's Fast 50 list. Presented annually, the Fast 50 recognizes Utah's fastest growing companies, based on five years of compound annual growth and revenue. Companies on the list are also acknowledged for their entrepreneurial spirit and innovative business tactics, in addition to high revenue growth. Layton is ranked No. 34 on the list.
Jason Perry, the Utah Governor's Chief of Staff, address the companies recognized at an awards luncheon on August 26th and challenged each of them to stay active and keep contributing to Utah's economy as well as the state's communities. Utah is well-known for its business opportunities, providing companies with not only a good place to start, but also a good place to grow even when the economy isn't at its best.
Layton has weathered the economic difficulties well enough to find itself among the 50 prestigious growth companies by focusing on increasing the geographic markets and diversifying the base of customers it serves. Layton has opened offices and hired employees in Nashville, Tenn. and Irvine, Calif. in recent months to complement operations established in Idaho and Hawaii as well as corporate offices in Utah and the company's first out-of-state expansion in Arizona 23 years ago.
