After increasing revenues by 22 percent last year, Mobia Technology Innovations of Dartmouth has been named the 111th biggest tech company in Canada, according to the Ottawa consulting firm Branham Group.

Branham on Friday released its ranking of the 250 largest tech companies in Canada and once again there was not a purely Atlantic Canadian company in the top 100. (The rankings list No. 21 Novanta as a Saint John company, though the company’s website indicates its main office and operations are in Bedford, Mass.)

A specialist in systems integration and tech consulting, Mobia is now listed as the top Atlantic Canadian company, claiming the highest position by an Atlantic Canadian company in the Branham Top 250 that we’ve witnessed. With 2018 revenues of $39.4 million, Mobia has risen four places since the 2017 rankings.

The Branham Top 250, which is based on annual revenue, included five Atlantic Canadian companies in 2018. Each year the Branham rankings give a snapshot of how the region’s largest IT companies stack up against their national competitors. (The top Canadian IT company in 2018 was BCE with $17 billion in revenue.)

The other Atlantic Canadian companies ranked in the Branham 250 are:

  • Bluedrop Performance Learning of St. John’s fell 10 spots to No. 136 as its revenues fell 15 percent to $20 million.
  • Fredericton’s PQA Testing advanced three spots to No. 177 with revenues of $10.3 million, up 1 percent from the previous year.
  • Concertia Technologies of Dartmouth made the list for the first time after its revenues jumped 36 percent to $8.5 million. It was ranked No. 191.
  • Kraken Robotics of St. John’s placed No. 198 after its revenues rose 90 percent to $6.7 million.

The Branham rankings, whose platinum sponsors are the Halifax Partnership and Nova Scotia Business Inc., also name 25 Up & Comers, and nine Atlantic Canadian companies made that list. They are: BreatheSuite, St. John’s; HomeExcept, Halifax; Kognitiv Spark, Fredericton; Mesh/Diversity, Quispamsis, N.B.; NodalBlock, Halifax; ReelData AI, Halifax; Securicy, Sydney; Sidedoor, Halifax; and The Lotto Factory, Fredericton.

“We’re really excited to be on the list,” said Mesh/Diversity CEO Mike Wright, whose company helps enterprise clients assess the diversity of their workforce and take action to improve it. “It shows people are taking notice of the work we’re doing and the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace as a whole.”
