Planar receives distribution industry bronze 'Rising Star' award

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Planar Systems Inc., a provider of specialty display solutions, has announced it is a recipient of a 2008 Rising Star Award, presented by the Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) in recognition of the IT industry’s fastest-growing manufacturers and publishers doing business with GTDC member distributors. 

Winners are selected based on U.S. revenue growth over the past year, as reported by industry research organization The NPD Group in its Distributor Track service. Planar was selected as the bronze award winner in the $20 million to $100 million category for the 12-month period (ending May 2008). 

The GTDC Rising Star awards program was created and introduced in 2006 in response to the impressive success IT manufacturers and publishers are having in partnership with IT distributors. The GTDC presents Gold, Silver and Bronze awards as well as up to three “honorable mention” awards in the following revenue categories based on GTDC member sales: $500 million or more; $100 million to $500 million; and $20 million to $100 million.
