Inc. magazine has ranked Nickell Rental No. 4776 on its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
“We are very proud of being honored on this list. There were some tough years recently in the Georgia construction industry we had to endure. Fortunately, we have been blessed with a great team who hung in there and fought hard along side us and help propel our company to a place where we could take advantage of all the current opportunities,” says Nickell Rental President Tom Nickell.
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 18 to September 22) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
"The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident."
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 21 through 23, 2015 in Orlando. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Marcus Lemonis, host of the CNBC show “The Profit,” Robert Herjavec, one of the main "sharks" on ABC-TV’s “Shark Tank,” KIND Founder and CEO Daniel Lubetzky, and Co-Founder of Goodshop.com JJ Ramberg.
Since qualifying for the list, Nickell’s growth has continued to accelerate. They opened a new branch in Hiram, Georgia and have already grown their team by 10% this year. “We attribute our growth to two core values, a razor sharp focus on our niche markets and a company culture that promotes authentically caring about our customers. Anyone can rent equipment, that’s not our goal. Our goal is to help them get their project done,” says Nickell Rental Vice President Josh Nickell.
