TDI-Brooks was formed in mid-1996 when both Jim and Bernie left their management positions with a research center at Texas A&M University in College Station. The corporate headquarters is situated on 100 acres in College Station, Texas where you will find their geotechnical and chemistry laboratories.
TDI-Brooks has proudly received the Aggie 100 award six times along with Laboratory affiliate B&B Labs also previously receiving two awards.
The 100 Aggie-owned companies with the highest compound annual revenue growth from 2020 to 2022 were recognized at a formal celebration at the Hall of Champions at Texas A&M University’s Kyle Field on Oct. 27. The honorees were joined in celebration by family, friends, employees, faculty, administrators, current students and fellow entrepreneurs.
“The 19th year of Aggie 100 was literally one for the books,” said Blake Petty ’98, executive director of the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship. “This year saw three Aggie 100 records broken, including the highest number of applications and the highest threshold of a growth rate just to qualify for the list.”
“Any company on the 2023 Aggie 100 should be incredibly proud of this accomplishment as this was the hardest year to make it onto the list,” Petty continued. “As we look ahead to celebrating twenty years of Aggie 100 in 2024, we continue to be impressed by and proud of the accomplishments and successes of Aggie Entrepreneurs. Celebrating and honoring them is always a highlight of our year.” A complete list of Aggie 100 companies, including past years, can be viewed at aggie100.com.
