A Burnaby-based firm specializing in robotic machines that manufacture injectable drugs is the fastest-growing tech company in the country, according to Deloitte’s annual Technology Fast 50 list.

Vanrx Pharmasystems demonstrated revenue growth of 19,342% over the past three years to land it on top of the list.

“Our mission is to make it possible for more companies to operate world-class aseptic filling operations. If sterile injectables manufacturing becomes more flexible and cost-effective, life-changing therapies can be made more widely available,” Vanrx Pharmasystems CEO and founder Chris Procyshyn said in a statement.

Vanrx was followed by another B.C. company that landed on the No. 2 spot.

Vancouver-based connected car startup Mojio drummed up 11,949.5% revenue growth over that same period through the development of a device that plugs into a car’s onboard diagnostic port and sends encrypted data to Mojio’s cloud.

“With more than a billion unconnected cars on roads around the world, the market potential for our solutions is massive,” Mojio CEO Kenny Hawk said in a statement.

“We’re looking forward to continuing this growth — both in Canada and abroad — as we continue to unlock new revenue streams across the automotive value chain and shape the future of mobility with our partners and customers around the world.”

A total of 12 B.C. companies were featured on the list.

Bench Accounting, known for its tech-driven bookkeeping services, landed at No. 7 with 4,372.8%.
