ICC International ranked in Inc. Magazine's Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Inc. magazine today revealed that ICC INTERNATIONAL is No. 4917 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

 

“In a world turned upside down by Covid and civil unrest, the people of ICC International have navigated a global market and grown in the DC motor industry which has been in long term decline worldwide. At ICC International, where we manufacture commutators for DC motors for large industrial applications around the world, we are so honored that Inc. Magazine has recognized our performance. This represents a win not only for the incredible people of ICC, but for our industry as a whole. Together we are driving growth and making DC better.” Laura Lyke, President and CEO

 

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.  

 

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 12.

 

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

 

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
