"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.

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.
