Inc. magazine today ranked MKD Electric #4252 on its 2018 Inc. 5000, 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. This is the fourth time that MKD appears on the list (and the third year in a row), with a three-year sales growth of 79%.
“Needless to say, making the list gets harder every year as your starting base grows. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction have made the list more than once. A mere one in six has made the list 4 times.
“Congratulations to you and your team. You should be proud of all MKD Electric has achieved to date,” said James Ledbetter, Editor in Chief, Inc. Media.
