We're pleased to announce that Acuity Technologies ranks No. 3432
on the annual Inc. 5000 list for 2020, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its 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. It is the second time that Acuity has been recognized on the Inc. 5000, having ranked at No. 2388 in 2019.
“This recognition is the result of the commitment of the entire Acuity team and the trust of our amazing clients,” said Josh Anderson, CEO at Acuity Technologies. “Communications, particularly mobility, are central to almost any business’s operations. The challenge is making sure these services have a real strategic impact on the business while still being cost-effective and secure. Our growth has been the result of partnering with our clients to ensure they accomplish just that.”
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 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
“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.
