180 Engineering is thrilled to be included on Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list for the fourth time. The Inc. 5000 is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. It isn’t easy to make the list once, but only one in thirteen companies achieve this recognition four times.
“We are honored to be on this list with so many other great companies,” commented 180 Engineering’s CEO, Joe Coletta. “To have now made the Inc. 5000 list four times is a strong testament to the 180 Engineering team’s passion for this business and their dedication to serving both our clients and candidates.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow, or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
