WOODSTOCK – TMA member Matrix 4 was recognized once again by national Inc. Magazine as one of the nation’s top fastest-growing private companies:
Inc. Magazine named MATRIX 4 No. 1056 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This year’s ranking represents a significant leap from MATRIX 4’s debut on the list last year at spot No. 4084, a result of outstanding three-year revenue growth. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
“We are thrilled to be highlighted on this list for the second year in a row, and just shy of the top 1,000. This growth has resulted from a tremendous amount of hustle and heart from our team since our restart four years ago. We are honored to represent U.S. manufacturing on this level, and remain focused on the potential to transform this industry in new and exciting ways by sticking to our mission of making meaningful things that matter,” said Patricia Miller, CEO, MATRIX 4.
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
