September 25, 2012

It’s official and in print. Innovative-IDM has made the top 5000 fastest growing private companies for FIVE OF THE LAST SIX YEARS. Being a five-time winner puts us in a special class.

Buzzard Nesting with American Express and INC 500

September 27, 2011

I think Buzzard was sad to leave Washington DC. He flew into my office today and nested on an INC magazine and glared at my American Express card. I think he was trying to tell me he wanted to go back to the East Coast, where he just saw Innovative-IDM honored for being one of the 5000 fastest growing private companies by INC magazine.

INC 5000 Again for Innovative-IDM

August 24, 2011

For the fourth time in five years, Innovative-IDM has been named to the INC 5000 list of fastest growing private companies.

Innovative-IDM’s 90% growth rate over the past three years ranks 70th in the DFW market and No. 2,586 on the list of 5000 which takes into account nearly 7 million privately held businesses in the United States.

“It’s truly a blessing to work with such a talented group of people that we have here,” said president Gene Gray, who also will is the subject of a video to be shown at the annual INC 500/5000 meeting in Washington D.C. in September. “I’ve always said that good people aren’t hard to find. I’ve instead held to the truth that good people want to work with good people. That’s what we have here, and that’s what helps us exceed our customers’ expectations and keeps us on lists like the INC 5000.”

Innovative Automation Named to Inc. 5,000 List for Third Straight Year

July 9, 2009

For the third consecutive year, Innovative Automation is recognized as one of America’s fastest growing private companies, making the Inc. 5,000 list for 2009. The final rankings will be published in August.

There are more than 7 million companies with employees in the nation, meaning the Inc. 5,000 represents a top-shelf sliver of the American entrepreneurial effort.

“We have worked hard to acquire customers, but we have worked even harder to retain them,” says Gene Gray, president of Innovative Automation. “Everything we do or consider doing, we ask if it will benefit the customer. From our technology to our marketing to our sales to our manufacturing, our customers drive us.”

The Inc. 5,000 is an expansion of the Inc. 500, which Inc. introduced in 1982. The Inc. 5,000 includes the Inc. 500 but digs deeper to offer the most comprehensive look ever at the entrepreneurial engine driving the U.S. economy in the 5,000 fastest growing companies in America. The Inc. 5,000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over the past four years.
