Niche technology company Heico Corp. has been named to the Forbes list of “World’s 100 Most Innovative Growth Companies” for 2014.

Heico, which has headquarters in Miami and Hollywood, said in a press release Monday that it has earned nine awards in nine years from Forbes. It came in at No. 92 on the list.

The latest designation is the first time Heico has been included in a group of best-performing companies with market capitalization under $10 billion. The company, which manufactures replacement parts for airplanes as well as components for the space, defense, communications, medical and computer industries, has previously been included in the publication’s lists of “200 Best Small Companies” or “100 Best Small Companies.”

Weston-based Ultimate Software also made the list at No.8 and Sunrise-based MEDNAX took the No. 67 spot.
