Peerless Technologies has been named as one of the 50 fastest growing-companies in the Dayton region by the Dayton Business Journal.

“When these companies thrive, a pipeline of continued growth is set for the region’s economy,” wrote DBJ’s Elizabeth Kyle.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Peerless now has 491 employees in 21 locations across the country, and remains headquartered in the Dayton region. Over the last year, Peerless won new work that includes programs at the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center and the Air Force Civil Engineer Center, along with retaining large contracts supporting the F-22 Program Office and the Air Force’s Small Business Innovation Research program.

“It’s a privilege to be able to support these missions that serve our nation,” said Peerless President Michael Bridges. “The Dayton region was – and is – a great place to start and grow a business.”

In 2000, Peerless became the first company to move into The Entrepreneurs Center (TEC) and Edison Technology Incubator sponsored by the State of Ohio. Five years later, Peerless became the first company to formally graduate from TEC.

Peerless has supported a wide variety of federal clients, including the Air Force, Army, Navy, NASA, Department of Homeland Security, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Homeland Security, CENTCOM, STRATCOM, Defense Logistics Agency, Defense Information Systems Agency, Department of Energy and General Services Administration.

On July 30, 2020, Peerless was awarded the Department of Defense’s highest honor for industrial security, the James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award.
