Founded in 2004, the San Diego company ranked #2861 on the prestigious list, reflecting 80% growth over the past three years.
In addition to the national acknowledgement, Cali Bamboo marked its fourth year in a row among San Diego Business Journal’s 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies for 2012.
Of all San Diego businesses to make the Inc. 5000 list, Cali Bamboo came in 56th, and 154th nationally within the Consumer Products and Services industry. The company made the Inc. 5000 list in 2011 and 2010, and ranked an impressive #254 overall on the 2009 Inc. 500 list. This achievement marked a booming 877% growth.
“These honors are wonderful reminders to our team that we are continuing to expand our mission of sustainable building products throughout the world,” said Jeff Goldberg, CEO and President of Cali Bamboo. “To have this success year in and year out is only possible if you have a honorable mission, a superior product, and a great team.”
Now in its 31st year, the Inc. 5000 list is an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing privately held companies and represents the most comprehensive look at America's independent-minded entrepreneurs.
Companies on the 2012 Inc. 5000 list are ranked according to the percentage growth of their annual revenue over a three-year period -- from 2008 to 2011. To be eligible a business must be privately held, based in the U.S. and independent (not a subsidiary or division of another company). Businesses must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2008, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Companies must also have generated at least $100,000 in 2008 and $2 million in 2011.
