ASP, the nation’s leading pool service company, has earned its position for the 6th year to the Inc. 5000 list, a prestigious ranking honoring the nation’s fastest-growing private companies in America.
MACON, GA (August 16, 2017) – The Inc. 5000 list represents America’s fearless, creative, and innovative entrepreneurs. Today, ASP - America's Swimming Pool Company announced its well-deserved ranking of No. 2891 in Inc. Magazine’s 36th annual list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies. Tens of thousands of companies apply to this prestigious list, but only a few make the list more than once. This year ASP is in the rankings for the 6th year. Only four percent of companies can say they have made the list six times, and this result is something most businesses could only dream of.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“Being named one of Inc. Magazine’s fastest growing companies is a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit of our franchise owners,” said Stewart Vernon, Founder and CEO of America’s Swimming Pool Company. “Our team at ASP will continue to uphold an unparalleled standard of excellence, and we look forward to working alongside our future franchisees for years to come.”
The company’s success can be recognized by its mission to revolutionize the swimming pool industry through technology, higher standards, knowledge, and a better experience to provide peace of mind to swimming pool owners one market at a time.
“Each of our franchise owners possesses a strong desire to succeed, and seeing the growth in their business is what’s truly satisfying,” said Vernon. “We are proud to be named the six time honoree to this prestigious list of today’s most innovative company builders.”
ASP first entered the Inc. 5000 list in 2010 when it was ranked No. 1595. In 2013, ASP came back in the rankings as No. 1737 and has stayed on the Inc. 5000 list for five consecutive years. The company moved up to position No. 2891 from last year’s ranking of No. 3354. This year’s rankings synopsis for ASP points out the company’s 117-percent growth in revenue over a three-year period.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
