Press release: H&C Animal Health
Inc. magazine recently revealed that H&C Animal Health is No. 1,526 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are extremely excited to be recognized again by the Inc. 5000 list,” said H&C founder Chuck Latham. “I am very proud to be a part of this great H&C team. They have worked hard to bring exciting, new products to market which has contributed to our tremendous growth in a few short years. We are honored to be included on the Inc. 5000 list three years in a row. Congratulations to all the great companies that also made the list.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
