OnSite Media, Level 3, Diversified Lead AV Honorees on 2017 Inc. 5000
Inc. magazine’s annual ranking of fastest-growing small businesses charts companies with best three-year sales growth in America.
Utah-based OnSite ranks #646 on the 36th annual Inc. 5000 with three-year sales growth of 703 percent. It’s joined this year by several manufacturers, distributors and systems integrators in the AV space, including C2G (#2061), Level 3 Audio Visual (#2085), 2016 CI Integrator of the Year Diversified (#2279), Herman Integrated Services (#2286), BlueBolt (#2544), T1V (#2588) and Cenero (#3169).
“It is a great honor to be recognized as an Inc. 5000 company for two years running,” said OnSite Media president and CEO Brian Van Hecke in a press release announcing the company’s rank on the annual collection of the country’s fastest-growing independent small businesses.
“It is because of our exceptional team and the company culture we’ve created that we continue to grow at this pace. The long-term partnerships we’ve built over the years are a testament to the truly great, reliable and consistent service we provide. Our goal is to become an industry leader through continual innovation,” he said.
The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8 percent of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
“We are honored to once again be among the Inc. 5000,” said Fred D’Alessandro, CEO of Diversified, in a company statement. “Our success is a true testament of the technical expertise, dedication and drive of each of our team members. Every single day, we strive to deliver the best customer experience possible, and through our growth, we are even better positioned to provide innovative solutions to more markets and in more locations than ever before.”
Level 3 CEO Brad Peterson calls the company’s inclusion on the list “a wonderful compliment and signals to us a positive sign and confirmation that the strategy and ideology we’ve put in place at Level 3 Audio Visual concerning team building and culture are working, galvanizing and growing our footprint as well as our revenues. Over the years, we’ve focused our teams on a culture of quality for standardization, product delivery, and procurement strategies creating efficiency and profitability.”
Herman Integration Services president Chris Bianchet called the company’s inclusion for the second straight year “such an honor,” adding the company “is focused on its customers and driving the customer experience, and this award is proof that we are doing the right things.”
In the company’s announcement, Van Hecke said OnSite achieved Inc. 5000 recognition for the second consecutive year “by anticipating and responding to the needs of our clients as markets change and technology advances, by embracing creativity and by showing we care, every opportunity we get.”
OnSite Media offers “comprehensive professional audio/visual services, digital signage solutions, complete in-store data/CCTV/voice and other systems and technology to more than 200 of the world’s most recognized and respected U.S. and international brands,” according to the announcement. The company works in several vertical markets, including retail, hospitality, entertainment facilities and restaurants and bars.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. president and editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held Oct. 10-12 in Palm Desert, California.
UPDATE: Ashburn, Va.-based integrator MCW made the list at #4300. Here’s their announcement:
