Congratulations, EcoTech Marine, for Making the “2010 Inc 500” List
We are pleased as punch to announce that one of our clients, EcoTech Marine, has just been named to the prestigious “2010 Inc 500” list of America’s fastest-growing entrepreneurial businesses.Â EcoTech Marine manufactures water pumping products primarily for salt water reef aquariums and has revolutionized reef aquarium propeller pumps with its award-winning line of VorTech products and accessories.
The list is compiled and published by Inc. Magazine, which used the following criteria to select and rank the companies for inclusion:
This year’s list measures revenue growth from 2006 through 2009. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by June 30, 2006. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31, 2009. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2006 is $80,000; the minimum for 2009 is $2 million. Revenue figures given in the company profiles are for calendar year 2009, as are employee counts. Full-time and part-time employees are included in the employee counts; independent contractors are not. As always, Inc. reserves the right to reject applicants for subjective reasons. The companies of the Inc. 500 represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found on Inc.com.
Way to go, EcoTech! Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving company.
