Fast 50 Awards 2016Highland Homes was honored to be recognized as one of the 50 fastest-growing privately-owned companies based in Tampa Bay at the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast 50 Awards luncheon on July 21, 2016.

During the event, we were delighted to receive not just one, but two recognition’s:

  • No. 9 Fastest Growing Company in Tampa Bay based on Dollar Revenue Growth, with $41.1 million in revenue growth from 2013 to 2015
  • No. 29 Fastest Growing Company in Tampa Bay based on Percentage of Revenue Growth, with 80.46 percent growth from 2013 to 2015

Through our 20 wonderful years building new homes in Tampa Bay and throughout Central Florida, we have worked hard to provide quality new homes, a superior customer experience, and succeed through economic downturns. Gaining recognition at the Fast 50 Awards, for the second year in a row, is a great honor!

“We’re humbled by our success throughout the years,” says Bob Adams, President and Owner of Highland Homes. “And despite tough economic conditions, the effort from every one of our team members has resulted in our ongoing success.”

The list’s rankings Fast 50 Awards 2016 are based on revenue growth from 2013 to 2015, and financial information was verified by accounting firm Frazier & Deeter.

We were one of just three companies based in Polk County to make the list and we’re honored to be recognized by this business news publication for our personal growth, as well as our contribution to the economic growth here in Polk County.

Owner and President Bob Adams has been building homes in Tampa Bay for more than 45 years, and was a founding partner of Sun State Homes prior to founding Highland Homes in 1996.

Our experience shows through our hard work and achievements such as this one.
