    Inc_5000_medallion.jpgLakeland, FL  (August 21, 2017) – Integrated Supply Network (ISN) proudly accepted a ranking on Inc. Magazine’s 36th annual list of America’s fastest growing private companies – the Inc. 5000.  With a rank of 3381, Integrated Supply Network, is honored to be included amongst the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment, the independent small and midsized businesses.  Achieving almost 200% growth over three years, through acquisition and organic growth, ISN is constantly innovating to maintain its position as the automotive aftermarket’s leading tool, equipment and supplies distributor. 

    ISN was founded in 1984 and is the nation's largest independent automotive tool & equipment specialist serving wholesalers and distributors throughout North America and the United Kingdom.  ISN has made eight acquisitions and opened three new distribution centers over the last three years and grown by double-digits every year for the last decade.  Top priorities for the business include new product speed to market, managing the growing long tail of tools and equipment offered by over one thousand tool and equipment suppliers and providing complex supply chain solutions that allow their customers to have what they want, the way they want it, when they want, with limited working capital tied up in inventory.  Focused on growth that will assist in exceeding customer expectations and making the impossible, possible is how ISN will drive the industry standard. 

     “At ISN we set an expectation for audacious growth as the inspiration for reaching even higher,” said Bruce Weber, CEO, ISN.  “The innovation and hard work of our team is how we achieved this award.”

    ISN is built on an extraordinary team of people who are dedicated to product and distribution excellence that helps customers and suppliers grow.  That extraordinary team delivers the “customer wow” ISN thrives on.  We value our customers to no end and demonstrate that with offering a breadth of product, delivering product in 24 hours or less, and making the unexpected… expected. 

    The 2017 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.

    Methodology

    The 2017 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2013. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2016. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2013 is $100,000; the minimum for 2016 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.'s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
