Aquatherm Inc., the Lindon, Utah-based importer, marketer, and seller of German-manufactured polypropylene-random (PP-R) pipe systems, was named one of “America’s Most Promising Companies” by Forbes magazine.

Forbes’ list features 100 “privately held up-and-comers (with) compelling business models, strong management teams, marquee customers, strategic partners, and precious investment capital.”

In compiling its list, Forbes teamed with CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data firm that tracks investment in high-growth private companies. Using complex software, CB mined myriad online sources from press releases and social networks to job boards and court filings to come up with one algorithmically derived score that measures a company’s health.

Aquatherm placed 76th on the list.
