Inc. magazine has revealed that Ecochlor is No. 574 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 honourees on the Inc.5000.

“For the second time we are honoured to be included on the Inc. 5000’s annual list,” comments Steve Candito, CEO of Ecochlor. “This award marks a real achievement for our Team of dedicated employees; highlighting their commitment to provide a robust ballast water management system to our clients, along with a superior global service program for their ships. Our strong market standing in the environmental maritime industry and mission to bring quality products and services to market, validate Ecochlor’s position in the top 12% of US privately owned companies.”

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 3-year average growth of over 500%, and a median rate of 165%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was USD 209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past 3 years.
