OnQ Named One of the Bay Area’s Fastest-growing Private Companies

Company Earns Spot on San Francisco Business Times’ Annual Fast 100 List

HAYWARD, CA – (October 18, 2019) – OnQ Solutions, a leading manufacturer of custom retail displays, today announced it has been named to the Fast 100 – the San Francisco Business Times’ annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies.

“To be singled out as one of the Bay Area’s fastest-growing private companies is a great honor, and a well-earned acknowledgement of the team’s dedication, day-in and day-out,” said OnQ founder and CEO Paul Chapuis. “OnQ is not an overnight success, but rather is the result of a decade and a half of sustained commitment to helping brands and retailers merchandize in new and innovative ways.”

The 2019 Fast 100 ranks private companies in terms of year-over-year revenue growth from 2016 to 2018. The list celebrates independent, privately-held companies headquartered in the Bay Area in a variety of fields, including technology, construction, services and manufacturing. To be eligible, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. The full roster of the Bay Area’s fastest-growing private companies was unveiled yesterday at the Fast 100 awards gala at the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco.

Chapuis continued, “We’ve come a long way since OnQ’s humble beginnings 15 years ago, and today marks yet another milestone in our quest to build a successful business by helping our customers solve complex merchandizing problems. That quest continues to guide our business today, and I’m excited by the prospects that lie ahead as we expand our business even further.”

OnQ has demonstrated sustained revenue growth since its 2004 founding when the company was quick to recognize the growing need among retailers to deploy dynamic retail displays that enable easy and affordable product assortment refreshing with minimal disruption. For the past decade and a half, OnQ has continued to innovate and deliver retail display systems that help traditional retailers thrive in today’s omnichannel retail marketplace.

OnQ’s latest product development milestone is Converge® – a kinetic retail display platform that features laterally-sliding interactive tablets that move with the customers through their shopping journey and automatically serve up rich content with product education, specs, tutorials and reviews that allow for a more informed purchase decision. This ability to deeply research and compare products available both in-store and online keeps customers in the retailer’s ecosystem, whether the customer purchases a product off the shelf or makes an in-aisle purchase from the retailer’s online inventory.

The Converge platform – which recently earned best-of-show honors at the 2019 GlobalShop tradeshow in Chicago – brings together the best elements of in-store and online shopping to help brands and retailers thrive in today’s omnichannel shopping marketplace.
