The 2009 Inc. 5000, unveiled today on Inc.com, serve as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy.
According to Ronald L. Hollis, PhD, Quickparts President and CEO, "In the product development market, Quickparts has successfully gone from a start-up company to one of the top providers of Rapid Prototyping and Injection Molding services in just nine years. With nine straight years of tremendous growth, we are continuing our record as one of the fast-growth success stories in North America."
"Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate," said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. "That's why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year."
