SunLink Corp. recently ranked as the fifth fastest growing EnTech company on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. SunLink grew 215 percent during this period.
“Today, when every organization can be a tech company, the most effective businesses not only foster the courage to explore change, but also encourage creativity in using and applying existing assets in new ways, as resourcefully as possible,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications industry leader. “This ingenious approach to innovation calls for the encouragement of curiosity and collaboration both within and outside the office walls.”

SunLink’s chief executive officer, Michael Maulick, credits the company’s evolution from respected engineering powerhouse to full-scope energy solutions company and the tireless commitment of the SunLink team with the company’s triple-digit percent revenue growth.
“Companies with bold vision and solid execution are driving not just renewables but the entire energy sector to the next level,” Maulick said. “As this award and our growth underscores, SunLink is one of those propelling the energy industry forward. Like so many of our distinguished peers on this list, we’ve been able to accelerate faster and further ahead by stepping back, looking at the bigger picture and ignoring traditional barriers that have historically hindered our industry’s momentum.”
