And guess what?
Kala came in at number 83 on the list, with $13.2 million estimated in revenue, right behind Mesa Boogie (#81) and Seymour Duncan (#82). Kala came in ahead of EMG (#88) and a bunch of other companies.
The magazine noted:
The results … reflect a market that, while improving, is still struggling to regain ground lost in the wake of the financial crisis.
The magazine also noted that the industry has been held back by of all things, the ingenuity (or lack thereof) of the companies’ engineers. Which is probably why we’ve seen – and hopefully will continue to see – some really cool products from Kala of late.
