Wistex Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Businesses
At Wistex, we pride ourselves on bringing expert knowledge, exceptional customer service, and good old-fashioned hard work to every customer that buys electronic components from us. Over the years, we’ve built a reputation for excellence that keeps our customers coming back again and again.
When you put in this kind of quality work every day, people tend to take notice. While we don’t do it for the recognition, today we’re thrilled to announce that we made this year’s 36th annual list of the fastest growing privately-owned companies in America, published by Inc. Magazine.
Known as the Inc. 5000, this list has been published once a year since Inc. Magazine’s first issue in 1979 and since then it has become a singular distinction for private, independently-operated businesses. In order to win this prestigious honor, a company must be based in the United States, must be privately held, and must not be a subsidiary of another company. Each nominated company is then ranked according to percentage of revenue growth. As such, only the most dynamic operations make the list and we’re elated to be in the company of American businesses who together have grown an average of 481% over the past 3 years and have created over 600,000 jobs for our economy. Being named to this list is quite an honor for us and it speaks to the independent spirit of our company. We’re also proud to be creating jobs for people right here in the United States and our local Philadelphia community.
Today, we join such legendary companies as Microsoft, Pandora, Domino’s Pizza, Yelp, and more in being named to the Inc. 5000 and we couldn’t be happier to be appearing in the same publication as these business titans. In the future, we hope to continue our meteoric rise and make numerous appearances on the Inc. 5000 like so many other well-known companies. We hope that someday Wistex will be a household name just like past Inc. 5000 winners Timberland, LinkedIn, and Zillow. One thing’s for sure; no matter what happens, we will continue providing the best possible service for every customer we have the privilege of serving, the way we have since day one.
Speaking of our customers, we want to thank all of you as well. No company has ever been successful without putting their customers first, and without your patronage, we wouldn’t be in a position to even be nominated for this accolade. So to all those customers who made this possible, we appreciate everything you’ve done to help us be successful and we hope we can count on your continued support in the future.
Once again, it is our privilege and pleasure to make the Inc. 5000 list. Thanks to Inc. Magazine for their consideration, thanks to all the people at Wistex who worked so hard to put us in contention, and thanks to our loyal customers who keep us working hard. Keep an eye out for next year’s list; we hope you’ll see the name Wistex on it again!
