NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Americord, a leader in the advancement of umbilical cord blood, cord tissue, and placenta tissue banking, has been ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the 5000 fastest growing private companies in the U.S.
"We are honored to make the Inc. 5000 list again this year," says CEO Martin Smithmyer. "It is a huge accomplishment and a testament to our commitment to make cord blood banking accessible for every American family."
This marks the second consecutive year that Americord has been recognized for its achievements. Founded in 2008 with a purpose to improve lives and change the world, the company has grown over tenfold within the last three years.
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-In- Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
Americord continues to innovate in the stem cell banking space and hopes that more families can take advantage of the potentially lifesaving benefits of cord blood, cord tissue, and placenta tissue.
