Home News Direct Expansion Solutions Among Top 20 on Texas A&M University’s Aggie 100 List

Direct Expansion Solutions (DXS), a North American HVAC manufacturers’ representative that specializes in variable refrigerant flow (VRF) implementation and design, announced today that it secured the 14th position on Texas A&M University’s annual Aggie 100 list.  Compiled by the Mays Business School’s Center for New Ventures, the Aggie 100 list identifies, recognizes and celebrates the 100 fastest growing Aggie-owned or Aggie-led businesses in the world. DXS partner, Mike Donovan, graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering in 1996.

“We are proud to be honored by Texas A&M on the annual Aggie 100 list,” said Donovan. “It has been a fast ride to success for DXS since the 2007 launch with my partners Thomas and Keith McLaughlin, and this award provides further validation that our team is willing to do what it takes to deliver superior customer service and ensure the growth of the company.”

DXS was ranked 14th on the list for its compounded annual growth rate of 92.02 percent from 2009 -2011. Also helping DXS to achieve a high growth ranking was its relocation to a larger Austin office and the addition of three experienced team members who support regional growth and demand for DXS’ VRF solutions in the Texas region.

The 100 Aggie-owned or managed companies with the highest revenue growth were recognized at a luncheon in the Zone Club on the Texas A&M University campus, Friday, October 26, 2012 (click here to view photo).
