Eric Bruce

When SBN Magazine interviewed Eric Bruce for a story in 1999, his company, Trilogic Corp., wasn’t far removed from its emergence from a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filed in 1997.

Since its descent into reorganization and subsequent emergence from it in August 1997, the systems integration company has bounced back, moving into new headquarters in Southpointe, boosting its annual sales and winning some awards along the way.

This year, Trilogic made the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s Technology 50, with 53 percent growth over five years in the $10 million to $25 million annual sales category.

Also this year, Trilogic received a national award from Cisco Systems, one of its vendors, for best year-over-year performance, and the company was honored as the Minority Small Business of the Year at the Minority Enterprise Development Awards.
