Hydra-Flex is Listed on the 2014 Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies
August 20, 2014 - Burnsville, MN – Inc. magazine today ranked Hydra-Flex, Inc. No. 2905 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs.
Hydra-Flex, Inc. was founded in 2002 by Jaime Harris and Gary Brown, who met while working together in product development at a prior organization. HFI Manufacturing began as two men, a beer fridge, and a machine shop, but was quickly transformed by their desire to “find a better way” to manufacture innovative products for the vehicle wash industry. Today their core values of innovation, reliability, and accuracy are evident as they continue to add to their team, develop new products, and expand into other vertical markets.
“In our early days, if you looked at our numbers they didn’t make sense, but we were too blind and stubborn to give up,” says Jaime Harris, Hydra-Flex CEO, “It’s exciting to see our organizational mission align with creating value for our customers in a manner that delivers real results that are quantifiable. Our customers are our most valuable asset. We are only on this trajectory because they have been believers and strong advocates for us.”
“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship,”
As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Hydra-Flex now shares a pedigree with companies such as Intuit, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Oracle, and other notable alumni. Complete results of the Inc. 5000 can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
