Fusion Packaging has been recognized and honored as a member of the Dallas 100™ for its third consecutive year.  Founded and managed by the SMU Cox Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship, the organization scans the business environment to identify the 100 fastest growing privately held companies in the Dallas Metroplex, then honors them at one of the most prestigious facilities in the Southwest, The Morton Meyerson Symphony Center. 

“The unsung heroes of our economy are the entrepreneurs who build their own businesses and create jobs as fast as large companies eliminate them”, said Jerry White, event co-founder and director of the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at SMU Cox School of Business. “While entrepreneurs are the engines of growth in our economy, they often go unrecognized.  The Dallas 100™ was created to correct this injustice”, he added.

Fusion Packaging was bestowed this award for not only their momentous percentage of growth over a two year span but also because of their initiative, dedication, determination and entrepreneurial spirit.  Winners are selected based on growth as a percentage of sales increase and dollar growth in the given period.  These figures are calculated and confirmed by a top accounting firm in the Dallas area.  

More than 1,100 guests filled the Meyerson Symphony Center for the evening, which included a keynote address by Jere Thompson, CEO of Ambit Energy, who told the audience "It’s all about your attitude. If you’re excited about something, that excitement is contagious.”

 “We are excited yet again, to be part of such a distinguished group of companies in the Dallas 100™ but even more excited about where our organization is headed in the future”, said Derek Harvey, Co-CEO Fusion Packaging.  “Providing the best products and services to our customers is what makes us a success in our industry and allows us to win prestigious awards such as this, but we know it’s our employees, our team, that makes us truly successful and we are humbled.” he added.
