ComplianceSigns.com Ranked #859 on the 2010 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private US Companies
Inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list puts ComplianceSigns.com in good company. Previous lists have included Microsoft, Timberland, Under Armour and Zappos, to name but a few. Despite the fact that qualification for this year’s list took place during the latest recession, total revenue and employment numbers for listed firms increased from previous years.
“The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression,” said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. “The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs.”
“Being recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in America is a great honor,” said company founder and president Paul Sandefer. It highlights the confidence our customers place in ComplianceSigns.com every time they order, and we thank them for that confidence.”
“This award is a testament to the hard work, dedication and extraordinary quality of our employees - especially in a major recession,” says Sandefer. “They have embraced ComplianceSigns.com’s simple strategy: Discover what our customers want, then maximize customer satisfaction through easy shopping, fair prices, high quality and fast fulfillment.” The company employs approximately 30 workers, most at a manufacturing facility in Chadwick, IL.
The U.S. Small Business Administration reports there are 6 million private small businesses with less than 500 employees in the U.S., and that these businesses generated two out of every three new jobs over the past 15 years. While many small businesses have suffered in the latest recession, members of the Inc. 5000 list, including ComplianceSigns.com, have achieved significant sales and employment growth despite the many challenges of the current economy.
ComplianceSigns.com produces workplace safety signs, parking signs, no smoking labels, Braille restroom signs and other safety-related signs. Many of their products are used by other small businesses to comply with state, federal and local safety requirements, such as OSHA, ANSI, DOT and NFPA standards. Company clients include industrial manufacturers, retailers, schools, health care facilities, military and government agencies, professional buildings and churches.
As an Inc. 5000 honoree, ComplianceSigns received public recognition by the magazine, including a company profile on its website. See the Signweb article about this honor here
