Crain’s Cites Tukaiz as One of Chicago’s Fifty Fastest Growing Companies
Monday, June 13 2011

Franklin Park, IL, June 13, 2011—Tukaiz, a leading marketing services production company, announced today it has made the Crain’s Fast Fifty list for the Chicago area. The list recognizes Chicagoland’s fifty most promising and fastest growing public and private companies. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years, from 2005–2010. Tukaiz’ revenues grew 136 percent during this period.

Tukaiz has been offering marketing production services for more than 48 years. It provides imaging, print and interactive services for more than 200 advertising firms and corporations in a variety of industries, most of which are household names. Tukaiz remains under the leadership of the original founders and owners, the Defino Family, whose business model has always been to lead the industry with innovative services that are driven by a keen sense on the pulse of the marketplace. Fostering a culture that attracts and rewards the industry’s best, brightest and most innovative thinkers, Tukaiz employs 167 people in its 150,000 square-foot facility located in Franklin Park.

“Tukaiz is both proud and humbled to be recognized by Crain’s as one of the fifty fastest growing companies in the Chicago area,” said Frank Defino, Sr., CEO of Tukaiz.  “From the very beginning, we have understood the importance of an unwavering focus on customer care and exceeding expectations. This has not changed over the years. We are very grateful for our talented and dedicated employees and our loyal customer base. We would like to thank them today as we know much of our company’s ability to achieve and sustain this outstanding growth rate is due to them.”

To identify its Fast 50 list, Crain’s evaluated companies with headquarters in a six-county area with 2010 revenues of at least $20 million. The companies with the highest five-year percentages of growth became the Fast 50.
