Ranking is the Result of Impressive Three-Year Sales Growth of 205%
YARDLEY, Pa. – Aug. 16, 2018 — This week, Inc. magazine ranked Exact Solar No. 2167 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list highlights those that are successful in the most dynamic segment of the American economy – independent small and midsized businesses. According to the publication, the chosen are creators. They create companies, they create value, and they create jobs. Many have gone on to be the most recognized public brands, such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and others.
According to Mark Bortman, owner and CEO of Exact Solar:
We are honored to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row. It takes more than just having an entrepreneurial spirit. In a competitive solar energy market, credit really goes to our amazing team, from sales people to installers to our excellent office staff, that always puts our customers first and never gives less than 100%. Our customers know, from each and every interaction with everyone in our Exact Solar family, that their complete satisfaction is our goal, from the first sales discussion through the life of their solar energy system
Our smaller size allows us to take the time each customer needs to be educated about what they are purchasing and confident that they are getting the best system for their home and their family. Unlike the larger national installers, we never incentivize our installers with bonus pay for faster installations, so each job is installed perfectly for each unique home. That attention to detail, and obvious care, makes all the difference to our customers.
The 2018 Inc. 5000, unveiled August 15, 2018 online at Inc.com, is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2%, and a median rate of 171.8%. Not only has Exact Solar beaten the median at a 205% growth rate, but by being 61st of 181 listed Pennsylvania operations, the company is also a top performer in the region.
Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter comments:
If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice. The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.
In addition to being recognized nationally for our business growth, Exact Solar is especially proud of our repeated industry and customer rankings. For five years running, the company has received an Angies’ List Super Service award, a direct measure from our customers. We have also been a Top 500 Solar Contractor for five consecutive years, recognized among our solar peers.
