PRLog - Aug. 20, 2014 - GREENVILLE, S.C. -- While hundreds of new faces appear on Inc. Magazine’s prestigious 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies list every year, one Southeastern brand has achieved that honor for 2014 -- with an increasingly uncommon added distinction.
Charles Johnson, CEO of EDTS
EDTS, the full-service technology consulting firm specializing in network security, managed IT services and advanced infrastructure for Southeastern business, was named to the 2014 Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the fifth consecutive year – a distinction fewer than 18% of honorees typically achieve annually – growing and expanding even during one of the worst recessions in American history along the way.
"We are delighted to be recognized for five consecutive years as one of America's fastest growing companies," stated EDTS CEO Charles Johnson. "As one of very few firms in our region to make the Inc. 5000 list and one of far fewer companies in America to celebrate this honor for five consecutive years, we dedicate this recognition to the commitment and hard work of our team, and to the successful partnerships that we have created with our clients."
EDTS comes in ranked at 3522nd place on this year’s Top 5000 list, and continues to rank highly among IT Service providers on the list – historically the fastest-growing segment. The 2014 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2010 through 2013, with average annual growth for 2014 coming in at 516 percent, according to Inc. To qualify, companies must be U.S. based and privately held, independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- and have had at least $100,000 in revenue in 2010, and $2 million in 2013.
The magazine surveys private America’s independent businesses to take a comprehensive snapshot of that critical part of the economy. Participating companies vary widely in their focus, ranging from digital media companies, retailers and food and beverage companies to advanced manufacturers, technology and telecommunications businesses.
"We attribute our growth and continuing success to an unwavering commitment to provide EDTS customers with comprehensive IT solutions, responsive and attentive service, and our passion for helping them grow their market share and profitability,”
Over 27 million businesses are registered in the United States and thus eligible for consideration;
"Companies in the Inc. 5000 are great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” said Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
EDTS has also been named to the MSPmentor 501 Global Edition list of the world’s top 501 managed service providers (MSPs), and ranks #95 on that organization’
