Eight Springs companies could be ‘Companies to Watch’

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:,

Eight Colorado Springs or El Paso County companies have a shot at being named one of the state’s 50 “Companies to Watch.”

Each year the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade compiles a list of companies that are on the growth fast track and stand to become big contributors to the state’s economy.

The Colorado Springs companies on the list are:

  • Braxton Technologies, LLC
  • Combat Training Solutions, Inc.
  • elope
  • Imprimis, Inc.
  • Neumann Systems Group, Inc.
  • Pyxant Labs Inc.
  • TAEUS International Corp.
  • Welkin Sciences

“Based on percentages there is a very good chance that at least one Colorado Springs Company will be awarded as a 2009 Colorado Company to Watch,” said Business Retention and Expansion Program program coordinator Stephanie Steffens.

For companies to be considered for the list they must demonstrate a focus on growth, be privately held, be headquarted in Colorado Springs, employ between six and 99 people and have annual sales or working capital between $750,000 and $50 million.

  4. Combat Training Solutions, Inc. provides Non-Pyrotechnic IED Simulators and mobile training support to homeland defense, military, law enforcement and security organizations around the world. The company designs, manufactures and integrates Battlefield Special Effects that provide realistic explosion effects for live situational training. CTS products are completely safe for direct contact and have been proven to increase the life-saving skills of soldiers and better prepare them to defend against evolving terrorist threats such as wireless improvised explosive devices, suicide bombers and landmines.
