Inc. Magazine Ranks NSK Inc Part of the Fourth Annual Inc. 5000
Boston IT Consulting Firm on Exclusive List of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies
Boston, MA, August 30, 2010 – NSK Inc has been selected by Inc. magazine for its fourth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. NSK Inc ranks among some the most prominent brands in America including: Pandora, 7-Eleven, Brooklyn Brewery, and Radio Flyer. This recognition is evidenced by NSK’s commitment to excellence in business.
According to Inc. President, Bob LaPointe, “The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression.” Despite the fact that this year’s measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, the aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year.

The New York City metro area has the largest group of Inc. 5000 companies (410), followed by Washington D.C. (363), Los Angeles (262), Chicago (203), and Boston (189). “Despite the current economic conditions, NSK has been able to see double digit growth year after year thanks to our commitment to our customers,” says Tim Lasonde, President of NSK Inc. “We as a company feel privliged to be among the 189 Boston based companies recognized for their fast paced growth and development.”
On the national level, Business Products and Services had the most companies on this year’s list with 640, followed by IT Services (607), Advertising and Marketing (410), Health (396), and Government Services (336).
