LONGWOOD, Fla., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Waste Pro has been named the fourth largest privately owned company in Central Florida, according to Orlando Business Journal's Golden 100 Companies with revenues of $510 million. The company has 2 million customers, 2,750 employees and more than 1,800 heavy trucks.
Waste Pro's growth and increased market share in eight Southeastern states was also recently recognized as part of Waste 360's 21st edition of their Industry Ranking. In its Annual Hauling & Disposal ranking, the Waste 100, Waste Pro is ranked number 11 among America's largest waste collection companies.
Waste Pro was founded in 2001 by John J. Jennings of Longwood who has built the company into the fastest growing in the United States. "Our goal is to be the best in service, equipment and team members. Our future is very bright," Jennings stated.
Private ownership makes Waste Pro particularly unique in its ability to expand operations and sustain consistent financial growth in a strategic and competitive manner. Waste Pro continues to demonstrate its commitment and economic impact within the region.
