Granite announced today that the company has surpassed its 2019 fiscal goal of achieving $1.5 billion in annualized revenues, marking a decade for which its annual growth has on average exceeded $100 million. The company has achieved these milestones with no outside acquisitions, no outside investment and no debt.
Fueling Granite’s impressive growth is continued demand for voice services along with significant increases in data and wireless services. Companies that Granite has historically helped to improve traditional TDM local and long-distance voice services are realizing that Granite can provide even greater value and efficiency with data and wireless products and services, adding bandwidth and capacity while making connections more reliable and resilient. Granite does this without being wedded to any single underlying network platform or technology – including its own nationally deployed network – and instead utilizes the access best situated for each customer at every location.
In recognition of the hard work and contributions of Granite teammates toward achieving this goal, Granite CEO Rob Hale awarded $1,500 bonuses to teammates on October 4th and held a celebration on October 11th. The bonus is in addition to all other holiday, year-end, performance and other bonuses already planned.
This year Granite was recognized by Forbes as one of the country’s 2019 Best Employers for Diversity, America’s Best Midsize Employers and Best Employer in Massachusetts and Florida, and recognized by the Boston Business Journal as Massachusetts’ Top Charitable Contributor.
