The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries…that are underreported in the business media.
(PRWEB) August 24, 2007
Inc. ranked Sterling Testing Systems, Inc. fifth amongst Business Service providers in the state of New York in its first-ever Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. Sterling, a leading provider of employment screening services, is in the top third of the overall list. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list, highlights many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.
"We are proud to be acknowledged by Inc. for our tremendous growth and dedication to industry development," said William Greenblatt, Chief Executive Officer. "We will continue to look for innovative new ways to serve our client base, ensuring that they are receiving the most accurate information to make the best hiring decisions."
Sterling was acknowledged for its high level of revenue growth from 2003 through 2006 – the time period of measurement. Among other initiatives during this time, Sterling expanded its suite of service offerings and created innovative new methodologies to provide turnaround times 50% faster than the rest of the industry. There is a focus within the company to generate the highest levels of data quality, delivery, and service availability for Sterling’s 6,000 customers.
"The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy – the entrepreneurial part," said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager, Jim Melloan. "The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries…that are underreported in the business media."
The 2007 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based and privately held, independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2006, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2003, and $2 million in 2006.
