Load Bank Rental Leader makes List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies for Fifth Consecutive Year with Three-Year Sales Growth Rate of 84 Percent
Owings, MD , September 1, 2011 — ComRent International (ComRent), the leading provider of load bank rental solutions and services in North America for testing mission-critical power systems, today announced that for the fifth consecutive year, Inc. magazine has named the Company to its annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Ranked this year at No. 2683, ComRent joins Spirit Airlines, television maker Vizio, Honest Tea and Dunkin Donuts, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“Construction professionals and facilities engineers are looking for a trusted partner to help them accurately, cost-effectively and safely test and verify the mission-critical electrical and mechanical systems that power high-performance buildings,” said Clayton Taylor, CEO of ComRent. “These key players simply cannot afford for the power, cooling or backup power generation of their facilities to fail – too much is at stake. Our 84 percent year-over-year revenue growth is a direct result of our commitment to meet the evolving technical requirements of our customers and to keep their commissioning and testing projects on schedule and on-budget.”
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2011 Inc. 5000 companies remains an impressive 94 percent. The companies on this year’s list report have created 350,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $366 billion, up 14 percent from last year. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/5000
“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. magazine Editor Jane Berentson.
The 2011 Inc. 500 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2007 to 2010. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2007. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent-not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies-as of December 31, 2010. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2007 is $100,000; the minimum for 2010 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
