Commuter Air Technology (CAT), an AGC Aerospace & Defense company, was named one of the fastest-growing private companies in Oklahoma City at the 2015 Metro 50 Awards hosted by the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce. CAT has been a Metro 50 Award recipient five times.
“Commuter Air Technology is delighted to be named one of Oklahoma City’s fastest-growing private companies,” said Darryl Wilkerson, CAT President. “We appreciate our City, State, and Federal Representatives in Government and the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce who all work tirelessly to preserve and enhance the business-friendly environment we enjoy in Oklahoma City and the great State of Oklahoma.”
“We are grateful to our customers who believe in us and entrust some of their most sensitive operations into our care – with the full confidence that we will deliver,” Wilkerson added. “Lastly, I am personally appreciative to the employees and shareholders of Commuter Air Technology, without whom, none of the achievements for which we have been honored are possible. This recognition is in honor of their hard work and commitment to our strategies and ultimate success.”
CAT was recognized along with the other honored companies at the Metro 50 Awards Banquet on September 29, at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum where Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett unveiled the official rankings. The Metro 50 Award allows both emerging companies, as well as companies that have exhibited substantial history as an established business, to be recognized. Metro 50 companies demonstrate positive growth in revenues; growth in the number of employees; creativity/entrepreneurship; and business development through the expansion of facilities, customer base or markets.
The Metro 50 Awards are sponsored by Bank of Oklahoma, Cox Business, Ernst & Young, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber, Hartzog Conger Cason & Neville, the Journal Record and OG&E.
