The company’s ascent has been remarkable. In less than a decade, Vizio has turned into the largest seller of liquid-crystal display sets in North America, surpassing such well-regarded brands as Samsung, Sony (SNE), and Philips (PHG). Along the way, it has been steadily profitable.
What does the "along the way" mean? Does it mean "Along the years"?
Thanks a lot
