CHINO, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
Inc. magazine today ranked Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long-range wireless communications products for the home and office, NO. 16 on its 32nd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies and No. 1 for the Computer Hardware industry. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
“Being recognized by Inc. magazine today is a great honor for all of us at Amped Wireless,” said CEO Jason Owen. “This company was literally started out of a garage and it is incredible how quickly it has grown. We attribute our success to our great team of dedicated employees. We fill a unique void in the networking industry by creating long-range wireless products and as more and more electronics in homes and offices become connected devices, our growth will only continue to build from here.”
From 2009 to 2012, Amped Wireless had a three-year sales growth rate of 11,068 percent.
The 2013 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 20 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 918.59% in sales growth. The Inc. 500’s aggregate revenue is $14.1 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,739 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 52,100 people and generated over 44,912 jobs in the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500|5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/500.
"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
