Houston, TX-November 16, 2006-Tyrell, Inc. is being recognized as the kingpin of the fastest growing technology-based companies in Houston. The Houston Business Journal’s Fast Tech 50, now in its sixth year, ranks the area’s 50 best companies, based on outstanding annual revenue growth.

Tyrell, Inc. manufactures Zeno®, a unique acne-fighting device that utilizes heat to treat infections. It delivers a specific heat dose for a specific amount of time to kill the bacteria in emerging pimples. In clinical trials, 90 percent of patients saw results within as little as 24 hours.

Klemp, CEO of Tyrell, Inc. “We couldn’t be happier about receiving this prestigious accolade from the Houston Business Journal,” Klemp continued.

Tyrell, Inc.’s rapid growth was punctuated with the market revenue jumping more than 1,700 percent over the year.
