Urbana, IA (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
For the fourth year in a row, Urbana-based Clickstop was included in Inc. magazine’s prestigious 500|5000 list of fastest-growing companies, ranking at #1553 overall. In addition, it noted that Clickstop was the 86th fastest-growing retailer nationwide; and #5 in growth for companies in the state of Iowa.
The compilation of information measures revenue growth from 2009 through 2012, with Clickstop boasting an impressive 256% growth over that time period. Clickstop first made the Inc. 500|5000 list in 2010 with a ranking at #1122 and has consistently made an appearance in the top third each year thereafter.
Clickstop was founded by CEO Tim Guenther in 2005 when he began selling cargo control merchandise on what has now become the company’s flagship site, USCargoControl.com. The company now also operates nine additional online stores, in markets ranging from reflective insulation to bulk plastic storage merchandise.
In addition to consistent revenue growth, the company has also experienced growth in staff, physical space, and capabilities in 2012 and the first half of 2013. A warehouse expansion and the creation of a sewing and assembly division for the US Cargo Control division has the company moving into the development and production end of its growing tie down business.
“Having the INC 500|5000 list highlight our achievements as we've grown from just a small start-up company to where we are today has been extremely rewarding,” said Guenther. “We’re thrilled to have experienced tremendous growth at Clickstop, and our future business plans include adding jobs, continued expansion, and contributing to the local economy,” said Guenther.
According to Guenther, those plans include launching a new brand related to fasteners and hardware in October of this year.
