Consistently Fast Growing
October 15, 2013 at 8:36 AM
Inc. magazine publishes a ranking of the 5000 fastest growing companies in the U.S. We’ve explored that list in recent blog postings to understand the Charlotte USA companies that achieve this national recognition.
151 Charlotte area companies made the list at least one of the years from 2007 through 2013. Eighty-eight of those companies have been selected in multiple years.
It is a real accomplishment to build a company that makes the Inc. list. Ventureprise salutes all of our region’s winners.
Today, we recognize two companies that are the most consistently fast growing in Charlotte USA.
Carolina Tree Care in Concord, NC stands alone as the one company in our area that has made the list every year since it began in 2007. Congratulations to president, Jack Guffey, and his team! (It is always great to see a fellow industrial engineer succeed.)
T2 International of Mooresville, NC has been on the list for six consecutive years beginning in 2008. Todd Youngblood and his team have built a powerful engine for taking ideas to market. Ventureprise recognizes their commercialization capabilities as a tremendous regional asset.
Congratulations to these most consistent growth companies and to the eight additional firms that have made the list for five years!
