– Canadian Business unveils 30th annual list of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies –

Vancouver, BC (September 13, 2018) Canadian Business and Maclean’s today ranked RAM No. 41 on the 30th annual Growth 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. Produced by Canada’s premier business and current affairs media brands, the Growth 500 ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth. Growth 500 winners are profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business published with Maclean’s magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com and Growth500.ca.

RAM made the 2018 Growth 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 1,688%.

“The companies on the 2018 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today,” says Deborah Aarts, Growth 500 program manager. “As we celebrate 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that entrepreneurship is healthier than ever in this country.”

RAM’s rapid growth is due in large part to its principal founders, Ziad Boustany and Joe DiPlacito, having an astute understanding of the changing landscape of heavy civil construction. Starting off as strictly a construction management company, RAM set itself apart by merging expertise in design with field experience; being quick to adapt to industry needs and trends, including a prominent focus on sustainability and environmental factors. Now a multi-disciplinary consultancy, RAM offers full-scope project services to its clients that include BC Hydro, Fortis, and JV Driver.

“It’s an incredible honour for us to be recognized on the 2018 Growth 500 ranking,” says DiPlacito. We started this company in 2007 because we felt there was a gap in the current market, and through hard work and an amazing team, have gotten to this point. Right now, we’re looking ahead to the future, continuing to bring innovative solutions to the industry and adding top talent to our staff.”
