Fairware_Web86B+WFairware made the first-ever list of top 10 fastest-growing ad specialty companies in Canada, released today by the Advertising Specialty Institute® (ASI). We’d like to congratulate our peers who also made the list.

ASI also released Canadian highlights from Counselor® magazine’s upcoming “State of the Industry” report, showing 2012 distributor ad specialty sales rose to $1.56 billion, up from $1.48 billion in 2011, an increase of over 5%.

ASI celebrated the top 10 fastest-growing Canadian companies at the Power Summit Thursday night. The list was determined by the percentage each company grew between 2010 and 2012.
