 GLENMOORE, Pa., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The December issue of Inc. magazine has ranked CompuDraft, of Glenmoore, No. 143 on the 1991 Inc. 500 list, which ranks this country's top 500 fastest-growing privately held companies.
 Founded in 1985, CompuDraft provides state-of-the-art professional drafting, design and engineering services. Since 1986, CompuDraft has grown from a firm of two to a staff of more than 30, and has experienced a sales growth rate of 1,827 percent. The firm is the highest-ranked company in the Greater Philadelphia Metro area and, also, one of the fastest-growing companies on the Philadelphia Business Journal's 1991 Top 100 list. CompuDraft's expertise encompasses all facets of CADD design and drafting, as well as specialization with CADD hardware and software systems, third-party proprietary software, and CADD training.

 To be eligible for the 1991 Inc. 500, a company must be independent and privately held. The rankings are based on percentage increase sales from 1986 through 1990. Companies had to show between $100,000 and $25 million in sales for 1986 and had to register a sales increase between 1989 and 1990.

At the same time, the companies created 53,500 new jobs. The average company on the list has been growing at an annual rate of 1,467 percent, adding nearly 21 employees every year.
