Ultimation Industries Named to Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
ROSEVILLE, Mich. (Aug. 12, 2020) – Inc. magazine today ranked Ultimation Industries, LLC on its annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. Ultimation is a woman-owned leader in the conveyor technology and automation industry and has been designing, manufacturing and installing machinery and equipment, automation devices, tire and wheel processing lines and conveyor systems since 1989.
We are honored that our customer-centric approach to business and the resulting growth of our company is being recognized in the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies,” said Jacqueline Canny, CEO of Ultimation.
Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Ultimation’s primary business segment historically has been large, turnkey conveyor systems. However, according to Canny, many of Ultimation’s newer customers are companies that are growing fast through e-commerce channels themselves. “They need smart and lean supply chains, which is driving continued investment in conveyors and automation,” she said. To support that transition, Ultimation expanded into smaller, ‘quick ship’ products and systems that are sold through their website and in Amazon’s stores.
“Every contact inquiry we get is an opportunity to learn how to be more customer centric,” she said. “We answer every phone call with a live sales associate. We get back to every enquiry within 24 hours. We work hard to make as much information available on our website as we can to educate and inform customers and ultimately, grow the business.”
The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2019.
“From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk.
In addition to the Inc. 5000 recognition, Ultimation was a finalist for Amazon’s Woman-Owned Small Business Spotlight Awards in 2019, which celebrates entrepreneurs and small businesses across the country selling in Amazon’s stores. The company was also listed as one of Metro Detroit’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in 2019 by the Michigan Business and Professional Association.
