For the fourth year, Minneapolis-St. Paul-based Hydra-Flex Inc. has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.
The list represents a comprehensive look at the most successful companies within an important segment of our economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs. Hydra-Flex lands at No. 2,574 with three-year growth of 137 percent and is one of only 146 manufacturers on the list.
“Being included in this prestigious list of companies four years in a row is an honor and testament to the rapid growth we’ve sustained over the years,” stated Jaime Harris, president and CEO of Hydra-Flex. “Our achievements are a direct result from our team loving what we do, and who we do it with. Our shared passion, values, and commitment to innovation are evident in the products we make and how we do business.”
Founded in 2002, Hydra-Flex manufactures fluid handling equipment used in the hydro excavation and industrial cleaning industries. In addition to making the 2017 Inc. 5000 list, Hydra-Flex earned spots on the 2014-2016 Inc. 5000 lists, the 2015-2016 Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Fast 50, won Best In Class at the 2016 Minnesota Manufacturing Awards, and is a finalist in four categories at the Minnesota Business Magazine 2017 Minnesota Manufacturing Awards.
“Every year Inc. recognizes the fastest-growing companies in America,” stated Eric Shurenberg, president and editor in chief of Inc. “This year, the winners have, once again, placed the bar very high. Companies that made the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2013. Over a stretch when the economy grew just 6.7 percent, that’s a result most businesses could only dream of.”
