CHASSIS PLANS INC. 500 LISTING
Chassis Plans has been ranked #151 among the top 500
fastest growing private companies in the United States
by Inc. Magazine. Chassis Plans also secured the top
position as the fastest growing company in the category
of Computers and Electronics.
"Inclusion in the Inc. 500 list validates our
growth and the relationships we have with our customers.
Chassis Plans continues to gain market share in the
difficult industrial and military computer markets
because of the high quality products we offer and
the outstanding customer service our employees extend.
Customers such as Lockheed, L3, General Dynamics and
other prime contractors repeatedly to turn to Chassis
Plans for solutions to their difficult application
requirements." said Chassis Plans CEO Mark Lovett.
"This prestigious award fits nicely with last
year's recognition by the San Diego Business Journal
Fast 100 list in position 4 as the fastest growing
electronics and computer company in San Diego County."
Each year, Inc. Magazine researches and publishes
the List of Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies
in the US - the Inc. 500 List. The ranking is based
on a percentage of revenue increase over a three-year
period. This groundbreaking research uncovers the
top emerging growth companies.
This year's list measures revenue growth from 2002
through 2005. To qualify, companies must have been
founded and generating revenue by the first week of
2002, and therefore able to show four full calendar
years of sales. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based,
privately held, and independent--not subsidiaries
or divisions of other companies--as of December 31,
2005. (Since then, a number of companies on the list
have gone public or been acquired.) This year Inc.
raised the minimum revenue required in the base year
(from $500,000 to $600,000) to ensure that these fast-growing
companies are building upon a substantial base. Revenue
figures listed in the company profiles correspond
to calendar year 2005, and the number of employees
listed is as of December 31, 2005. Full-time and part-time
employees are included in the head count; independent
contractors are excluded.
