This year’s list shows Atrion leaping up 45 ranks from its 2009 VAR500 slot of 455. The Company is up 61 ranks from its 2008 inaugural showing of 471. Accounting in part for Atrion’s growth is its continuous investments in talent development, technology, and service offerings, including unified communications, data center, and managed services. Atrion’s AlwaysOn philosophy and campaign along with the addition of roles to the Company’s leadership team, including Chief Technology Officer, Chief Operations Officer, and Chief Intelligence Officer, have also contributed to the strategic direction and growth of the Company.
The16th annual VAR500 list details the leading producers among technology integrators and technology solution provider organizations in North America based on gross worldwide revenue of hardware and software sales, as well as earnings from professional and managed IT services. This year’s list reflects the strength of the technology reseller channel as the ranking includes 182 new companies with four percent of the new entrants landing in the Top 100.
“Atrion is proud once again to be named to the VAR500 list,” said Tim Hebert, CEO of Atrion. “Even through a recession-filled 2009, our year-over-year growth signifies that we are on the right business track – making the necessary investments in our internal operations in order to deliver the best products, service and experience to our clients. The 2010 VAR 500 recognition continues to add to our momentum as a leading New England IT service provider, and I look forward to seeing us break the 300 level next year!”
“The VAR500 is the who’s who of the solution provider community. Microsoft, HP, Cisco, Symantec among others are highly reliant on the VAR 500 to sell their products to businesses and collectively this audience generated more than $500B in sales in 2009. Even more importantly they solve customers’ biggest IT business problems through product integration, training, consulting and services. In companies large and small, the VAR500 are considered integration experts, trusted business advisors and invaluable partners.
