Azzur Group, a life-science consulting company, makes the Inc. 5000 list for the third straight year

Willow Grove, PA, Aug. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Azzur Group, a leading provider of consulting services and project resources within the life science industry, announced today it has earned a spot on the Inc. 500/5000 list for the third consecutive year.

"We are honored to be named as one of America's fastest growing private companies again this year," said Azzur Group President Mark O'Donnell. "Earning a spot on the Inc. 500/5000 list is a testament to the dedicated work ethic of our employees, the emphasis we put on quality, and our customers to whom we are grateful."

Azzur Group moves up to the #1430 spot, a considerable leap from its position of #3857 in 2013. This jump reflects a booming 298% three-year sales growth - a number bolstered by the company's significant internal progress.

"It's been a busy year for us and we are continuing to evolve in many exciting ways," said O'Donnell. "We now have the ability and capacity to take on large-scale projects and provide continued service from discovery to delivery of those projects."

These enhancements are a result of several strategic moves made by the company this year. In March Azzur Group acquired Azot, LLC, a leading distributor of robotic solutions, to form Azzur Engineering. In May the company merged with BioSPEQ, Inc., a consulting firm to the biotech/pharmaceutical, medical device, and food/cosmetics industries. Earlier this month it announced a partnership with 3Seed Marketing, Design & Interactive, a full-service advertising agency.

"It's very important to us to continue to evolve as an organization," said Azzur Group CEO Michael Kavinson. "Building partnerships with other businesses within our field helps us to foster innovation and equates to outsized growth overall."

In addition to an exciting year of mergers, acquisitions and partnerships, Azzur Group has also expanded to include offices in Maryland, Texas, California, North Carolina and Massachusetts.
