NEW YORK – Inc. magazine revealed its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. Fifth Wheel Freight (FWF) earned recognition on the Inc. 5000 for the sixth consecutive year, ranking No. 2476 with three-year revenue growth of 234%. This prestigious list represents a unique look at the most successful independent small businesses within the American economy.
“We have an incredible team, and this award is the result of the hard work and dedication of our people,” stated Josh Brawley, COO of FWF. “Our relentless pursuit to provide excellent service and reliability drives FWF to reach our goals and achieve the highest levels of success, creating new opportunities.”
Earning recognition for six consecutive years on the Inc. 5000 is a rare achievement. Tens of thousands of companies have applied since its inception in 1982, but only 4% have made the list six times.
“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.”
Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2021. The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2021 is $2 million.
