The Albany Business Review Named Us One of the Best Places to Work for 2018!

The Albany Business Review recently named us one of their 2018 Best Places to Work award for small companies. That announcement was back in October, and today they published a short interview with my business partner Greg (behind a paywall unfortunately). The tone was intended to be pretty light/goofy, here’s an excerpt: Using one word, sum up your company’s culture. Busylaxed. A made up word that means staying busy but in a relaxed atmosphere. What is your team’s superpower? Cranking out orders! Our team can… Continue reading

We’re Back on the Inc. 5000 for the Fourth Consecutive Year!

This morning Inc. released their list of the 5000 fastest growing private US companies and for the fourth straight year we’re on the list. This year we’re ranked #3,778 with 96% three-year growth. A few thoughts beyond what I’ve mentioned in past years: It’s an incredible honor to make these lists and be mentioned alongside so many great companies. Nothing lasts forever so I’m just trying to appreciate it while we’re in the middle of it. This year they included rankings by metro area, and… Continue reading

We’re #16 on the List of Fastest-Growing Companies in Albany

For the third year in a row we’ve been named to the Albany Business Review’s List of Fastest-Growing Companies (link is behind a paywall). This year we were #16 with 96.31% three-year growth! Last year we were #21 with 48.37% growth, and the year before we were #18 based on five-year growth. What struck me this year when looking at the list was the current number of full-time employees. At 8 we had the second fewest of the 34 companies that submitted that information. Many… Continue reading

We’re on the Inc 5000 for the Third Straight Year!

Today the Inc 5000 came out and we are #3613, up over 500 places from last year! The letter we received from Inc noted that less than 1 in 5 companies make the list three times, yet alone three straight years. This consistent growth is one of the things that I’m most proud of. I think I summed up my thoughts well when we made it last year: I think making back-to-back lists is a testament to the quality of the organization that we’ve built…. Continue reading

We’re #21 on the Albany Business Review’s 2017 List of Fastest-Growing Companies

We were recently named to The Albany Business Review’s 2017 Fastest-Growing Companies List (list is partially behind a paywall). This is our second straight year on the list. They changed the list a bit this year – it was based upon 3-year growth instead of 5-year growth, and it contained the top 50 local businesses instead of the top 30. Nevertheless, we came in at #21 with 48.37% growth! We tend to fly under the radar compared to other local businesses, which is totally fine… Continue reading

We’re On The Inc. 5000 Again!

This morning Inc released the 2016 Inc. 5000, their list of the fastest growing private companies in America. We checked in at number 4,140, up from number 4,284 last year! Last year felt like a really big accomplishment for me personally, which I wrote about at the time. This year is a little different. I think making back-to-back lists is a testament to the quality of the organization that we’ve built. There are a lot of companies who make lists like this once because of… Continue reading

New (Last-Minute) Pure Adapt Site

Last Friday, the Albany Business Review wrote a story about us in conjunction with naming us to their Fastest Growing Companies List. Towards the end of the phone call that I had with the reporter last Monday, I casually asked “when will our story be published?” I was hoping for a few weeks. Instead, I got Friday. The reason that I wanted a few weeks of time was because I wanted to get our Pure Adapt, Inc site updated. The site was in desperate need… Continue reading

Albany Business Review Feature Story & Fastest-Growing Companies List

This morning the Albany Business Review named us to their 2016 list of Fastest Growing Companies and ran a corresponding story on us. Both links are behind a paywall. After failing to find a copy at my local grocery store and gas stations, I paid $4.99 for a PDF copy. Here’s the article (click to enlarge): The Fastest-Growing Companies list is based upon five-year growth. For a reasonably sized city like Albany, being #18 feels like a pretty good accomplishment! The Business Review doesn’t have… Continue reading

We’re On The 2015 Inc. 5000!

On Wednesday morning I was at the SFO airport about to board when I received a much anticipated text message from my business partner Greg. The Inc. 5000 list came out and we are number 4,284! For those unfamiliar with the Inc. 5000, it’s a ranking of the fastest growing private companies in the US. The Albany Business review also wrote up a short article summarizing the businesses located in the Albany area that are on the list. We are 9th out of 15 companies…. Continue reading
