COVINGTON, Ky., June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- We are excited to announce that Gravity Diagnostics has been named as the winner of the 17th annual Fast 55 Award by the Cincinnati Business Courier! The Fast 55 awards program is Greater Cincinnati's premier program recognizing the 15-county region's fastest-growing private companies.
Gravity Diagnostics has been recognized as the winner in the top growth category of companies with more than $100 million in annual revenue. From 2018-2021, Gravity Diagnostics had the highest growth rate of 2,767%.
Over the past year, Gravity Diagnostics has processed over 2.4 million gold standard PCR COVID-19 tests. Since the beginning of the pandemic, they prioritized those who were in the most critical need, through partners such as the Commonwealth of Kentucky which enabled them to serve all the Kentucky hospitals and long-term care facilities and processed nearly 50% of all the COVID-19 samples in the Commonwealth.
Continuing their mission to provide as many options for reliable and fast testing, Gravity partnered with Kroger Health to process the testing for regional and nationwide drive-throughs, and shortly after partnered with them on the launch of their FDA EUA authorized at-home COVID-19 testing kit. Gravity later launched their own at-home COVID-19 test collection kit through their current home-testing brand, GetMyDNA.
"We are truly humbled to be recognized as the winner of Fast 55. Over the past year, our employees have shown an incredible amount of dedication and adaptability, navigating uncertain times, and putting others before themselves. It is like nothing I have ever seen. The growth behind this recognition is propelling us forward to continue our mission to empower individuals to take charge of their healthcare destiny and we look forward to what our future holds," said Tony Remington, CEO, and Founder of Gravity Diagnostics.
Throughout the past year as Gravity scaled their operations and revenue, they increased their square footage by over 900%, literally breaking down walls when needed. They went from 35 to over 400 employees and did everything they needed to do to continue their impact on the fight against COVID-19. During this tremendous growth, they also earned their CAP accreditation for meeting the highest standards in laboratory practices. They truly embody their values of care, compliance, and confidence.
