Green building industry leader, Cali Bamboo, has been included on the prestigious Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies list for the ninth straight year with a ranking of 1,539 for 2017. The direct-to-consumer and omni-channel flooring and decking company saw sales revenue grow in 2016 to $83 million, an increase of 80% vs. 2015, and 260% over the past three years. Each year Inc. recognizes the fastest growing private companies in America based on revenue over a three-year time frame. Companies on the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2013, during a period when the economy grew by only 6.7%.
“I’m so proud of our team and organization for making the Inc. 5000 list nine times in a row,” said Jeff Goldberg, president and CEO of Cali Bamboo. “When I look back over the last decade, I shake my head at the fantastic journey we’ve had, but when I look forward to the decade ahead, that journey will be transformative.”
Cali Bamboo products are made to be high-performing green alternatives to traditional wood products, thereby preserving old growth forests for future generations and preventing millions of pounds of harmful CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Collections are sold directly to homeowners, contractors, architects and designers online and through a network of authorized dealers across the country. Continued growth is projected by means of expansion of the flooring and composite decking product lines to better serve a wider range of commercial building needs, further capitalization of the direct-to-consumer platform, and focused development of the national dealer channel.
