Ten privately-held Arkansas firms made the 2011 list of Inc. magazine’s 5,000 fastest growing companies.
Rogers-based Rockfish Interactive, which sold last week to British agency conglomerate, WPP, was the highest ranking firm on the list at No. 774. Rockfish has averaged three-year revenue growth of 406% rising to $14.1 million in sales.
Another firm making the list was Snyder Environmental, an asbestos abatement, mold and lead-based paint remediation contractor, based in Little Rock. Snyder, which ranked No. 1817, has seen its sales grow by 145% during the last three years to more than $4.1 million.
“We are honored to be named as one of the top environmental services companies on the Inc. 5000 list,” said Joe Carter, founder and CEO of Snyder Environmental. “Being one of the fastest growing environmental firms in the country is driven by our ability to offer the lowest price, highest quality work, and some of the best people available to solve environmental problems.”
Carter said the firm has plans for growth that include expanding its current capabilities, introducing new services, and grabbing greater market share in Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Kentucky.
