NEW YORK, August 12, 2015 — Inc. magazine today ranked Candoris Technologies, headquartered in Annville, PA, NO. 1,054 on its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the country’s fastest growing companies,” said Stephan Van Der Ploog, Candoris President and Chief Accountability Officer. “Candoris continues to build by refusing to accept the ‘tyranny of the or;’ the notion that a company must choose between profit and values. By embracing the ‘genius of the and,’ we are proving that you can have a purpose beyond the bottom line and a practical pursuit of profit.”
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 18) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. During the qualification period, Candoris more than quadrupled in the size of its staff and saw revenue increase of 408%. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 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 story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
