NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine revealed that C.L. Services is No. 3,427 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing companies in the US,” said Jeff Lantz, President & CEO of C.L. Services. “This is especially meaningful this year, as our clients turned to us as a critical co-innovation partner in the midst of a global pandemic. This recognition is an incredible testament to our team and their ability to transform our clients’ supply chains in their greatest time of need. As we continue our aggressive growth strategy, we are continuing to invest in technology, people, and our geographic footprint to ensure that our partners continue to experience the award-winning support they have come to expect from C.L. Services.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2021 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
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 on their website. The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 17.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2021 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
