Surf9 LLC, a designer and manufacturer of footwear and inflatable watersports products, has made the prestigious annual Inc. 5000 List by Inc. Magazine at the 2,439 spot. Surf9 experienced a three-year growth rate of 177% on the strength of a sales increase in inflatable standup paddleboards, water shoes, sandals and the introduction of lifestyle footwear.
“Being named to the 2018 Inc. 5000 List is tremendous validation for our continued growth and hard work. We achieved this growth on the strength of creating quality products at competitive prices that provide an awesome user experience for consumers. My sincere thanks to the entire Surf9 team and our partners. We’re just getting started,” said John Chenciner, Surf9 CEO.
The celebrated rankings put the spotlight on America’s fastest growing companies. Past firms to make the list include Microsoft, Oracle, Zappos.com, among many other well-known companies.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” said Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “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.”
