America’s fastest growing companies were recognized on the 2014 Inc. 5000 list, and seven Santa Clarita-based firms landed on that list this year. The majority of local companies have placed on the list more than once, and growth isn’t easy when a company has to keep beating its own previous records.
The list was filled with highly competitive and highly profitable businesses with aggregate revenues of $211 billion, Inc. magazine announced. Combined the companies created 505,000 jobs over the past three years. Firms such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early market exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000 list.
Among the Santa Clarita companies recognized this year are Nexus, Scorpion Design, AMG & Associates, Canon Recruiting, Lief Labs, MoTek Technologies and Dazadi.
“The unprecedented organic growth of Nexus this past decade was only possible due to the vision and effort put forth by our employees, customers and strategic partners,” Waheed Choudhry, Nexus president and COO said in a statement to the media. “The investment we’ve made in our Cloud and managed services offerings has unquestionably contributed to our success and positioned us as a premier provider of these solutions.”
Construction company AMG & Associates has made it onto the list for the third time in four years and President and CEO Albert Giacomazzi said he’s proud of what his team has accomplished.
“We’re very proud of all AMG has been able to accomplish. We appreciate the many honors we have received, and the Inc. recognition is certainly chief among them,” Giacomazzi said. “Just as important are the many contributions AMG is able to make through our projects. It is gratifying to know that our understanding work will make a difference in the lives of people in our local and broader communities for generations to come.”
AMG was recently awarded a $4.6 million contract with The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles to oversee the construction of a multi-purpose building for The Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church in San Dimas.
Canon Recruiting was elated to receive the nod again – it’s fifth recognition – and to have done so during a period of years that were economically challenging for so many companies, said it’s President Tim Grayem. The company is proud to have survived through some of the toughest years the U.S. economy had seen, which Grayem attributes to his team of highly skilled recruiters and staff.
“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
