Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS) Makes Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for 2007
PTS, Inc. Ranks No. 3534 on the 2007 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 83.1%
Conshohocken, PA, USA, August 23, 2007 – Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS), Inc. has been named to Inc. Magazine's list of the 5,000 fastest-growing, private companies in America for 2007, the publication reported Thursday. PTS ranked as No. 3534 on the Inc. 5,000 list, which measures companies by revenue growth from 2003 to 2006.
Historically the Inc. list has included 500 companies, but this year it has expanded to include 4,500 more dynamic businesses. The top 500 will appear in the September 2007 issue of Inc., while all 5,000 will be featured on Inc.com. In September, all will be recognized at the 2007 Inc. 500 conference in Chicago.
“The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy – the entrepreneurial part,” said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries like Manufacturing and Construction that are underreported in the business media.”
“We’re very proud excited to qualify for the inaugural Inc. 5000,” said PTS Managing Partner Diana Fongheiser. “Every knows the Inc. Magazine brand…and is familiar with the Inc. 500. Their expansion to 5000 will provide appropriate recognition to a slightly broader group of dynamic companies.”
Hottest Regions for Fastest-Growing Companies
Leading the list of the fastest-growing companies in the nation is the Midwest region with 1,046 of the fastest-growing companies, followed by the West with 884 companies. The Southeast comes in a close third, with 872 companies, followed by the Northeast with 782 companies, and the Mid-Atlantic region with 606 companies.
Hottest Industries for Fastest-Growing Businesses
The largest business category is Construction, with 561 of the fastest-growing companies in this category, followed by Manufacturing with 515 companies, IT services in third with 466 companies, Business Services with 377 companies and Advertising & Marketing with 349 companies round out the top five industries ranked on the 2007 Inc. 5,000.
Industries reporting the highest total revenue in 2006 are Construction ($27.1billion), Manufacturing ($18.6 billion), Health ($13.1 billion), Computers & Electronics ($12.7 billion), and Financial Services ($11.8 billion).
With a three-year sales growth of 83.1 percent, PTS finished solidly in the upper echelons of fast-growing private companies. PTS also ranked No. 46 in the Top Companies of Education, and No. 94 in the Top Companies in the Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington area.
“We owe this great achievement entirely to our dynamic corporate management team and our dedicated network of therapy professionals,” said Pam Hackett, PTS Managing Partner. “And we’ll continue to focus all of our attention on the special needs children that we serve. They are our true inspiration and reward.”
The 2007 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based and privately held, independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2006, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2003, and $2 million in 2006.
