Surya named to Inc. 5000 list for sixth year in a row
August 18, 2016,
CARTERSVILLE, Ga. — For the sixth consecutive year, Surya has earned a spot on the esteemed Inc. 5000 list, an annual ranking of the nation's fastest growing private companies. In 2015, Surya was named to the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll, joining the ranks of a select group of companies that have appeared on the Inc. 5000 list for five years or more.
Surya secured its place on this year's Inc. 5000 list based on a three-year revenue growth of 84%. By revenue, Surya ranked 13th among 220 Georgia-based companies, making the list and in the top five in the Consumer Products & Services segment. The company continues to achieve significant double-digit growth, with revenues increasing from $64 million in 2012 to $117 million in 2015.
The addition during the past several years of multiple accessory categories, including lighting, bedding, and – most recently – made to order rug and art programs, along with an expansion into new segments such as the contract market, continues to drive significant growth. An emphasis on developing technology-driven sales and merchandising programs to help its designer and retailer customers build a successful accessories business has also been a key contributor to the company's strong performance.
"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," said Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails."
In May 2016, Surya moved into to a new, 1 million-sq.-ft. corporate headquarters and distribution facility in Cartersville, Ga. The move has substantially expanded the company's operational capacity and efficiency while setting the foundation to bring to the North Georgia region more than 200 additional jobs during the next few years.
