For the 5th Time, Engineering & Computer Simulations Appears on the Inc. 5000 list, Ranking No. 1998 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 188 percent
August 24, 2017 – Orlando, FL. Inc. Magazine ranked Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) No. 1,998 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Only seven percent of the companies represented have made the list five times, as ECS has. This impressive list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
ECS CEO, Waymon Armstrong, said: “Our mission is to provide our clients with outstanding training services, and innovative simulation solutions that ensure preparedness for the difficult and sometimes dangerous work they encounter in performing their operations. We are honored to be named to this prestigious list for the fifth time. It is truly a testament to our creative and dedicated team, and to our outstanding clients.”
Unveiled online at Inc.com, the 2017 Inc. 5000, along with the top 500 featured in the September issue of Inc., is one of the most competitive groups in the list’s history. Companies that made the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2013, over a period when the economy grew just less than seven percent. The companies on the list collectively generated 619,631 jobs over the past three years. 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.
Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg explains, “This year, the winners have, once again, placed the bar very high. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere seven percent have made the list five times.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held October 10 through 12, in Palm Desert, CA. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of the current and past generations, such as Alan Mulally, The Ford Motor Company; Daymond John, Shark Tank; Michael Dubin, Dollar Shave Club; and Norm Brodsky, entrepreneur and Inc. columnist.
