The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses.

“We have worked very hard to achieve such growth, and it’s definitely the result of a strong partnership among our executive leadership, the hard-working employees of Orion Technologies, and our many valued clients.” – Nirav Pandya, CEO
Orion Technologies is an Orlando, Florida-based company that specializes in the manufacturing of embedded single board computers (SBC), as well as the design and development of full systems and is one of the fastest-growing companies in Central Florida. Over the past three years, Orion Technologies has experienced a 317% increase in sales growth, allowing them to have a great impact on the embedded technologies industry as a whole.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX, and Orion Technologies will be in attendance. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president, and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.About Orion Technologies
