Cygnus Multimedia Productions has been named one of "America's 50 Hottest New Small Businesses" in the October issue of Entrepreneur Magazine.
Selection was made on sales growth figures supplied by Dun & Bradstreet. Cygnus ranked 20th and was the only company from Utah listed.Ironically, Cygnus has just changed its name. Its new name is Saffire Corp. Due to the company's explosive growth over the past year, Saffire will be moving next month to 772 E. Utah Valley Drive in American Fork.
"From the initial stage with six employees working in Les' basement (Les Pardew is the Saffire's president), controlling the fast ramp up has been challenging," said Hal Rushton, general manager.
Currently Saffire is working on new games for Windows `95, the Sony Playstation and the Sega Saturn.
"Our success has come as a result of our focus on attracting, developing and retaining the very best talent in the videogram development industry," Pardew said.
