NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine today ranked Orange Aluminum NO. 1780 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000. The most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies, Inc. 5000 represents a unique look into the American economy's most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
"Our customers are our partners, together we strategize opportunities and leverage our knowledge," said Cameron Munson, President of Orange Aluminum. "We can only be successful if we both win."
The average company on the Inc. 5000 list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 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 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."
Orange Aluminum has further demonstrated its leadership in its industry with the launch of the all-new Aluminum RFQ app, available for both Apple and Android devices. Developed to provide customers with a tool to communicate the right extrusion for a job, Aluminum RFQ is an easy and accurate tool to receive the right numbers the right way.
