Two-Time Honoree Achieves Three-Year Growth of 96%

SWC Technology Partners this week was named to the 2013 Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest growing privately held U.S. companies. In its second appearance on the list, SWC ranked #3312. Last year SWC ranked #3960.

Since the list was compiled, SWC’s growth has accelerated with a 96% overall revenue increase between 2009 and 2012. The company has also rapidly expanded their workforce, increasing their team 112% between 2009 and 2012.

“It is an honor for us to once again make the Inc. 5000 list and be recognized as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies,” said Bob Knott, President of SWC. “I am so proud of all the talented and hardworking people we have here. In the end, our success is driven by a clear understanding of what is best for our clients and the trust we have in each other as a team.”

SWC’s inclusion in the 2013 Inc. 500|5000 list is the latest in a series of recent accolades. Since February, the company has received its third consecutive ranking among MSPMentor’s top managed service providers in the world, recognition as one of the top 20 Best Places to Work by Crain’s Chicago Business for the second consecutive year and inclusion in Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For – for the fifth consecutive year.

“Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
