Thumbs up The INC.500 List Officially Released! America's 500 Fastest Growing Private Companies

View Complete List HERE

Inc. Magazine Unveils 29th Annual List of
America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 500

AAC Enterprises Inc. Ranks No. 324 on the 2010 Inc. 500
with Three-Year Sales Growth of 914%

NEW YORK, August 24, 2010 -- Inc. magazine today ranked AAC Enterprises Inc. #324 on its 29th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, GoDaddy, Zipcar, Clif Bar, American Apparel, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.

“Fast growth at any time is a big achievement; fast growth during the past few years is just short of miraculous,” said Inc. editor Jane Berentson. “The Inc. 500 consists of these just-short-of miraculous companies, the ones that through ingenuity and ambition have increased revenue, hired employees, and grown fast in difficult economic times.”

The 2010 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. magazine (available on newsstands August 24 to November 16 and on Inc.com), is a group of companies that are smaller but much faster-growing than last year’s crop. Aggregate revenue is $11.3 billion—down from last year's $18.4 billion—but median three-year growth is 1,231 percent, substantially up from last year’s 880.5 percent. The companies on this year's list employ more than 45,000 people. Complete results of the Inc. 500, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at Inc.com/500.

Despite the ongoing recession, the 2010 Inc. 500 offers a glimpse of the future of the U.S. economy. In the health sector, which saw aggregate revenue of $1.1 billion and a 917 percent median growth rate, businesses are moving forward on cancer and stem-cell research, clinical trials, and medication management. More than 25 percent of companies in the energy sector ($2.5 billion aggregate revenue; 942 percent median growth rate) focus on solar and other alternative sources. Fewer than a third of retailers ($356 million aggregate revenue; 914 percent median growth rate) have even a single brick-and-mortar store. And the number of companies providing technical services to the various branches of the federal government continues to rise.

Because the members for Camaro5 made this possible!

We are very excited to be recognized for our hard work and efforts these past years and just want to say: Thanks guys!

While the forums only represent a small fraction of the company's gross revenue the value far succeeds that. The feedback and honest criticism that we receive from the members on the boards helps us in ways that you guys may never know. The people on these boards are not afraid to speak their mind, if there is a product they do not like we are going to hear about it! Its the best market research that we could ever ask for!

So again, thanks everyone for the support, we could not have done this without you!

I have delt with a lot of vendors since the modding began on Veteran 1 and I always ask that "dealer/distributor" how much increase in business have they seen since the C5 came out..................90% report at least a 15-35% gain in business

Back from the Inc.500 Awards Gala in Washington DC.

We had a great trip full of informative seminars, excellent networking, and workshops that will better help us grow the business and recruit more talented staff. After this weekend we are confident that we have the tools to make this list year after year.

Overall we were placed #324 in the US, #21 in our Industry, #2 in our State, and #1 in the Greater New Orleans Metropolitan Area.

Here is a photo of Tiffanie and myself with the CEO of Inc Magazine on stage at the awards ceremony.



Again, thanks to all of our customers for the support! We could not do this without you

Awesome job Justin. It is always harder than most think to run a successful and growing business. Congratulations on you and your company's achievement.


P.S. Photo shoots of the SST will have your products on it.

Thank you Sir,

I actually have a couple sets of sidemarkers that are primed (need to be painted) that I can let go on the cheap. Let me know if you would be interested
