31 May 2021

Pont-Saint-Martin, 31 May 2021 – At the 3th edition of the “Industria Felix Award – Piemonte, Liguria e Valle d’Aosta che competono 2021”, Podium Advanced Technologies has received the Budgetary Performance High Honor award.
The motivation of the prize states that Podium is “the best small company and among the best companies led by under 40 entrepreneurs” and has “an international vocation, a growth of workforce and net worth with an excellent business performance and Cerved financial reliability rating for companies with registered offices in Aosta Valley.”

Since the start of its operations in 2011, Podium Advanced Technologies has been continuously expanding, as the numerous recognitions from Il Sole 24 Ore, the most authoritative Italian economic newspaper, and the Financial Times can testify: in March 2021 the latter picked Podium Advanced Technologies for the fourth year in a row among Europe’s 1,000 fastest growing companies.

The “Industria Felix Award” clearly shows that this extraordinary growth is a matter of quality before quantity, due to an outstanding business performance and a strong financial reliability. “Podium’s growth results from continuous investments in our people and from strong and long-lasting relationship with our customers, key suppliers and partners that enable us delivering successfully results in all our projects and ventures”, Podium CEO Francesco Monti says.

Organized by Industria Felix Magazine, a quarterly magazine on economics and finance and supplement of the Italian newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, the “Industria Felix Award” has been developed on the basis of a mass survey on the 2019 financial reports of more than 50,000 companies and carried out in cooperation with Cerved Group Study Office, the most important rating agency in Italy and one of the largest in Europe, specialized in evaluating companies’ economic and financial performances.

The awarded companies, selected through an indisputable algorithm and chosen by a qualified Scientific Committee, are identified on the basis of the best management performance and financial trustworthiness determined by the Cerved Group Score Impact.
