Bolt On Technology has ranked as one of the 2014 fastest-growing, privately held businesses in the Philadelphia region by the Philadelphia 100, the Wharton Small Business Development Center, the Entrepreneurs' Forum of Greater Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Business Journal.

The Philadelphia 100 rankings are based on companies’ percentage of growth over the last three years, ending in 2013. During that time frame, Bolt On Technology grew by 187% and ranked number 36 of 100, according to official Philadelphia 100 rankings.

In addition to founder and CEO Mike Risich, Bolt On Technology employed two workers two years ago and has since grown to employ more than a dozen.

The company’s software applications serve thousands of independent auto repair shops in the U.S., Canada and Guam. Bolt On, which operates a software development center in Bucks County, Pa., is poised for continued expansion both in its workforce, as well as its more than a dozen software applications, according to Risich.

“This achievement is just the next step in taking our company to another level,” Risich says. “I know our team embraces change and has the drive and motivation to continue to better our customers’ businesses.”

Founded in 2008, Bolt On Technology was created by Risich, whose vision of digitizing the automotive repair industry has continued to define the company. Bolt On creates mobile applications that save auto shops time, money and the need to write out lengthy estimates or vehicle diagnoses. It has grown to be one of the leading shop management software providers, the company notes. It has partnered with some of the largest companies in the business, including Mitchell 1, ATI (Automotive Training Institute) and CARFAX.
