NEW YORK, August 12, 2020 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Global Water Technology, Inc. (GWT) is No. 2266 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.
“Making the list for the 3rd time is truly an amazing accomplishment by our team. As our company continues to grow, achieving such high growth rates will become much more difficult, making the individual efforts of each member of our team all the more important,” says Michael Byerley, President & CEO of GWT. “Luckily, our culture of inclusion, transparency, and collaboration continues to strengthen, giving us the foundation to continue achieving incredible milestones for years to come.”
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.
