List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies Unveiled Today
Falls Church VA – Inc. magazine today ranked Three Wire Systems number 516 on its 30th annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.
Three Wire’s ranking reflects not only tremendous sales growth but also a three-year increase in employees of over 100%. In its industry, Government Services, Three Wire ranks 63rd in the country, and is ranked the 51st fastest-growing business in Washington, DC.
“We’re thrilled to have been selected as one of the fastest-growing companies in the country, and in our industry,” states CEO Dan Frank. “Three Wire is proud to remain a small business, but we’re also proud of our growth. This honor is a reflection of the dedication of all our employees.”
The 2011 Inc. 500|5000, unveiled in the September issue of Inc., is a group of companies that are smaller but much faster-growing than last year’s crop. Aggregate revenue is $10.5 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,275 percent.
