ST. LOUIS - idX Corporation, the preeminent manufacturer of consumer environments, is celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2014, marking a decade and a half of growth and stability.
Through a combination of strategic acquisitions and organic growth, idX has grown by more than 370% since its earliest years, with revenues forecast to hit $350 million in 2014.
Responding to that growth, and in anticipation of continued expansion in 2015, idX will move its global headquarters and St. Louis division to a new, larger location later this year.
idX CEO Terry Schultz"In the earliest years of idX, the leadership team established guiding principles that have served us well," said idX CEO Terry Schultz. "Those principles still guide our decision-making and strategy today."
Schultz noted that an acquisition strategy focused on making the company better, not just bigger, was a key to retaining focus during the years of growth.
"The industry has witnessed other companies that have rapidly rolled-up other organizations into larger corporate conglomerates," Schultz said. "That was never idX's goal."
"In contrast," he said, "idX sought to pull together the right people, facilities and mix of capabilities to best serve our retail clients' needs, wherever and whatever they might be. We've maintained a strong entrepreneurial culture despite our growth, along with a focus on solid fundamentals and customer obsession."
idX Corporation launched in 1999, with the merger of five regional fixture manufacturers. Today, idX has cemented its position as the leading consumer environments manufacturer worldwide. With manufacturing and distribution points strategically located throughout North America, Europe and Asia, idX is able to continuously deliver high quality, efficiently engineered products, timely deliveries and exceptional service in the global market.
"In the years ahead, the industry can be assured that idX will continue to evolve and provide innovative, customized solutions," Schultz said. "By always investing in the best people and processes, idX will remain the difference-maker in the marketplace for our customers."
