Inc. magazine revealed that Field Fastener is No. 4,689 on its annual Inc. 5000 list — the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Field has made the Inc 5000 list in eight of the last 10 years, which is extremely rare. In the history of the Inc.5000 list, only one percent of companies have made the list eight times.
Field is a global provider of inventory management and complete supply chain solutions for fasteners and other Class “C” items.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment, the 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.
“Being recognized in eight of the last 10 years by Inc. is an incredible accomplishment for the Field team,” said Adam Derry, CCO at Field. “It’s a testament to the commitment we have to our customers, and all that we do to ensure we live our mission statement, which is to have ‘Everyone who interacts with us, love us.’”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over one million jobs over the past three years.
“We are very proud of our culture and how our team is relentless about helping our customer save money and be more efficient,” added Derry. “We are excited about our future and we know that our best days are ahead of us.”
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., now available on newsstands.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
