NEW YORK — Kodiak Building Partners has ascended on Inc. magazine’s list of fastest-growing private companies. The company ranks 2,722 on the 2019 Inc. magazine list of the top 5,000 independent small businesses. The company, which last year was number 3,979 on the list, posted the highest revenue of all other Colorado-based companies on the list with a growth of 141%.
“We are honored, for the second year in a row, to be in such good company with great entrepreneurs recognized in this survey. Since our founding in 2011, it has been a privilege to be a part of such an innovative and collaborative team. Our escalation in ranking is a testament to the remarkable employees across Kodiak who work hard every day to support the building of communities in the markets we serve,” said Steve Swinney, CEO of Kodiak.
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, say Inc. magazine editors. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved a three-year average growth of 454%, and a median rate of 157%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“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.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held Oct. 10 to 12 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix.
Kodiak Building Partners includes 77 locations, serving general contractors, homebuilders, sub-contractors, remodelers, and consumers with its operations in Texas, Florida, Colorado, Arizona, Delaware, Massachusetts, Kansas, Michigan, Washington, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Maryland.
