Inc. magazine revealed this week that W.S. Darley & Co is on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Darley ranked in the top 50% of companies with a three-year growth rate of 164%.
Even more impressive, over the last decade, Darley has made the Inc 5000 list for 9 times! According to Inc. less than one-half of one percent (.50) of listed companies have achieved this milestone.
Paul Darley, company CEO cited, “Darley is honored and humbled to receive this award again this year. Our hardworking and dedicated team is passionately focused on serving our first responder customers. It’s a privilege to serve them.”
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 honorees on the Inc. 5000.
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 top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., which were made available on newsstands on August 12.
