Manassas, Virginia (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
New Horizon Security Services, Inc., a security officer services and training firm headquartered in Manassas VA, has been named one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list for the third consecutive year. New Horizon ranked 1,438, improving 1,287 spots from its debut on the list in 2011.
Inc. magazine editor Eric Schurenberg calls the 2013 list “the most exclusive ever,” with a median 3-year growth of 142% across all 5000 companies during an overall stagnant economy.
New Horizon’s remarkable growth of 279% during 2009 to 2012 is due to long-term contract wins with Commonwealth of Virginia agencies, local governments, community colleges, and upscale communities. During this time, New Horizon added 361 jobs and opened offices in Virginia Beach, Danville, Richmond, and Harrisonburg, VA.
New Horizon President John Frazer believes that focusing on customer service, professional staff development and training, and use of cutting edge technology is the key to the company’s success.
“I am especially proud of the devoted team of security professionals who have worked tirelessly to establish our brand within an extremely competitive industry,” Frazer said. “Making Inc.’s 5000 list for a third year in a row shows that our unique approach is thriving. Since our business is a people business, we’ve done well by caring for our employees and earning and retaining our clients’ trust.”
Inc. magazine groups electronic and network security firms together with companies who provide physical security services. New Horizon ranks 21st in the security industry as a whole but ranks third when comparing companies who specialize in security officers. New Horizon is ranked the 85th fastest growing company in Virginia in any industry.
