Eustis, Fla., July 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Despite being small in size, the growth of Eustis, Fla.-based Kevco Builders ( has captured the attention of a prominent business magazine. For the second year in a row, Kevco was listed among the Orlando Business Journal's "Fast 50" Central Florida companies.

The Orlando Business Journal's Fast 50 program recognizes the fastest-growing private companies headquartered in Lake, Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. Inclusion in this prestigious list is based on the companies' percentage of revenue growth from 2011-2013. Kevco, which is Lake County's most award-winning custom builder, employs 16 people and enjoyed revenue growth of 376% during that time period.

Company president Joe Ziler credits the team's ability to adapt quickly to the volatile real estate market.

"The market quickly changed and new construction began to once again be in high demand. We were closely watching the market and positioned ourselves in 2012 for land acquisition and local marketing to support this economic change," said Ziler. "We also stuck to our policy of operating with low debt and low risk while positioning ourselves in the market as a niche category. This allowed us to remain focused on customer service and quality so that our growth does not outpace those values."

Kevco Builders has been in business for more than 30 years. The company's many accolades include the Home Builder's Association of Lake-Sumter Parade of Homes 2014 "Best Value" category, several first place wins in 2013 as well as the 2012 Builder of the Year.  Kevco's honors, reputation and stability also led to it being named an exclusive builder at Lake County's prestigious Mission Inn Las Colinas community. Kevco now plans to expand outside the state of Florida within the next six months.

"We are most proud of our customer satisfaction rating which is just shy of 100 percent," said Ziler. "We survey every client regardless of how large or small the project and use their constructive feedback to constantly try to improve."
