Bandwidth named to list of the largest privately held companies in NC


RALEIGH, NC – October 23, 2012 – Bandwidth, one of the Triangle’s fastest-growing technology companies, today announced it was named to the “Grant Thornton North Carolina 100” list. The list recognizes companies demonstrating the tenacity, grit, staying power and business acumen required to be one of the 100 largest privately owned businesses in the state.

Grant Thornton has been celebrating the essential role played by these companies in the Carolina economy for over 25 years.

Bandwidth has been part of the Triangle area’s growth story for more than a decade. Today, the company’s technology powers some of the biggest brands in the market – Google Voice, Skype, Pinger and Bandwidth’s own republic wireless.

“We’re at the heart of a revolution going on in North Carolina – and more specifically, here in the Triangle. This region is such a vibrant area for startups and we’re a great example of a company that not only made it, but is turning an entire industry on its head,” said Bandwidth COO Chris Chuang.

“We began as a startup 13 years ago and now we’re the 6th largest telecom company in the nation. But that’s not the end of our success story. Our teams understand that what we’re doing here at Bandwidth is a real game changer. Particularly with our republic wireless product, we’re creating a new standard for how consumers experience mobile communications,” Chuang added.

Bandwidth has more than 300 employees today and currently has 35 open positions available.
