Talan Ranked Among Inner City 100 by INC. Magazine

Talan Products became the only Cleveland-based company to make the 2008 Inner City 100 list, a national ranking of the fastest growing inner-city companies from the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) and Inc. Magazine.

Talan, a manufacturer of high volume metal stampings, becomes the only Cleveland company to make the list in the past three years – but it is not the first time Talan has made the list.Talan was also chosen in 1998, the first year of ICIC rankings. This year, over 6500 nominations were received nationwide. Only 10 of the winners were manufacturers, and only one other was a manufacturer in the metals industry.

Talan’s growth rate of 156% over the past five years propelled it into the top rankings. “We were thrilled to win again,” said Steve Peplin, Talan CEO, who attended the two-day event in Boston. “We consider it a big deal. And it’s a great ‘Good News’ story for Cleveland.” Peplin attended seminars for Inner City 100 owners and managers at Harvard Business School and a gala awards dinner at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center that drew more than 1,000 guests. “It was very well done and it helped me feel good about the potential of smaller U.S. manufacturers generally in the face of tough foreign competition. Rubbing shoulders with the other winners was inspiring.”
