For the 3rd Time, Yorktown Systems Group, Inc. Appears on the Annual Inc. 5000, 
Ranking No. 749 With Three-Year Revenue Growth of 670 Percent

NEW YORK, August 15, 2018 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Yorktown Systems Group, Inc. is No. 749 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Additionally, Yorktown is named No. 2 of Top Huntsville companies and No. 6 of Top Alabama companies. Yorktown’s previous rankings include No. 3889 in 2017 and No. 432 in 2013. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

“Our team has worked very hard over the last few years of accelerated growth,” said Bryan Dyer, President & CEO after learning of this recognition. “Our growth comes from having a management team and employees who are focused on delivering quality services, on time and on budget. Despite the challenges that come from growing our employee base from about 100 to 650 in two short years, we have continued to deliver exceptional results for our customers, proven in superior ratings in all of our work. This is due to our team’s vigilance in always performing well in the work that we do. I am very optimistic about the company’s future and continuing our growth trajectory. There are companies on this Inc. 5000 list that will be billion-dollar companies someday. I tell our team ‘Why Not Us’ as one of those billion-dollar companies.”

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says 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.”
