Staticworx Flooring Named 14th Fastest-Growing Manufacturer by Inc. 500/5000
Demand for Smaller and Faster Electronic Gadgets Triggers Dramatic Growth for Static-Free Flooring Supplier
WATERTOWN, MA.-- Staticworx Inc., North America's leading producer of comprehensive flooring products and services, protecting worksites with static-free flooring solutions, today announced it has been named to the Inc. Magazine 500/5000 list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States.
Staticworx was ranked among the top 1,000 fastest-growing companies overall and was number 14 among all manufacturers on the list.
From December 31, 2006 to December 31, 2009, Staticworx reported a three-year aggregate revenue growth rate of 315%.
"Fast growth at any time is a big achievement; fast growth during the past few years is just short of miraculous," said Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. "The Inc. 500/5000 consists of these just-short-of miraculous companies, the ones that through ingenuity and ambition have increased revenue, hired employees, and grown fast in difficult economic times."
Staticworx President David Long said the company has benefited from the miniaturization of electronic gadgets trend, which in many cases has forced electronics manufacturers to remove on-circuit protection against electric shock to make room for more computing power. "In order to make devices do the things they are capable of doing, they've had to make a compromise," Long said. "In stripping out that protection, it now takes less energy to zap them than ever before. In many cases, companies cannot produce or use state-of-the art electronic products without fault-tolerant, static-free flooring."
Key to the growth of Staticworx is its Electronically Conductive ESD Rubber product, recognized as the industry's only fault-tolerant flooring by ESD Journal.
Introduced in 1982, the Inc. Magazine 500 list has become a distinguished editorial award and a celebration of entrepreneurial innovation. The full list is available in the September issue of the magazine.
Earlier this year, Staticworx was honored as the third fastest-growing privately held company in New England by the Boston Business Journal.
