    ROCHESTER, N.Y., AUGUST 20, 2009 – Inc. magazine ranked Kirtas Technologies No. 382 on its 28th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.

    “If you want to know which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Inc. editor Jane Berentson. “These are the most dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones finding innovative solutions to problems, creating smart systems, and inventing products we soon discover we can't live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”

    This is Kirtas’ second year on the list. The company pioneered the book digitizing revolution with the introduction of the first automatic page turning system in 2004. Since that time, the demand for digitized books has exploded with the ubiquity of digital book readers and numerous applications for smart phones allowing you to download a book from virtually anywhere.

    “Kirtas has faced the same struggles as everyone else in terms of the global economy, which makes our ability to maintain a position on the Inc. 500 even more rewarding,” said Kirtas Founder and CEO Lotfi Belkhir. “My heartfelt thanks go out to our loyal customers and our outstanding and innovative employees for bringing passion to their work everyday and contributing so much to the company’s success.”

    Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, GoDaddy, Under Armour, Jamba Juice, American Apparel, Oracle, and hundreds of other powerhouses have all gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.
