Inc. Magazine Unveils Its Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

Ecochlor Ranks for the Second Time on the 2020 Inc. 5000 List

17 August 2020 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Ecochlor is No. 574 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, 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.

“For the second time we are honored to be included on the Inc. 5000’s annual list,” commented Steve Candito, CEO of Ecochlor. “This award marks a real achievement for our Team of dedicated employees; highlighting their commitment to provide a robust ballast water management system to our clients, along with a superior global service program for their ships. Our strong market standing in the environmental maritime industry and mission to bring quality products and services to market, validate Ecochlor’s position in the top 12% of US privately-owned companies.”

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.

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 .

“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.”
