Three Washington businesses  -- Amazon, Coinstar and F5 Networks -- have been added to Fortune mag's list of 100 fastest growing companies.

All three have headquarters in the Seattle area. F5, which makes network management services and tools, has an engineering office in Liberty Lake.

Amazon moved to No. 30 from its previous rank of No. 52. Bellevue’s Coinstar ranked No. 61, followed by F5 Networks at No. 64.

Fortune's full list is here.  The Sept. 6 issue also features a section on Washington, profiling the state as a center for world-class innovation and featuring its new export initiative, designed to complement President Obama’s National Export Initiative.
