For the 2nd Time, Halco Testing Services Appears on the Inc. 5000

NEW YORK, August 14, 2019 Inc. magazine today revealed that Halco Testing Services made 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. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Halco CEO Don A. Genutis stated “We are very proud of making the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row, it's truly an amazing honor to have our hard work recognized in this manner.”

Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”

Halco Testing Services is the premier provider of electrical testing and maintenance services in the US. Their rapid growth is due to a combination of achieving high level customer satisfaction and applying unique service offering to enhance electrical reliability.
