Des Plaines Office Equipment has been named to the Inc. 5000 list for 2018.
Inc. magazine published its 37th annual Inc. 5000. The list represents a 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.
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” said Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
“What an honor to be named to the 2018 Inc. 5000 list,” said Chip Miceli, president. He added, “We thank our extraordinary team of talented people across all of our four locations, and a growing group of outstanding clients, all of whom have made this possible. We are thrilled to be included; we thank Inc. Magazine and congratulate everyone who made this list.”
