The omni-channel green building company saw a 30% jump in revenue in 2018, securing over $131 million in sales and a spot in the top half of the prestigious Inc. 5000 list. The recognition marks another year of product innovation and expansion, new business partnerships, and steadfast commitment to the CALI customer experience.
Green building industry leader, CALI Bamboo, has been included on the prestigious Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies list for the 11th straight year with a ranking of 2,196 for 2019. The direct-to-consumer and omni-channel leader in both flooring and decking saw 2018 sales revenue grow to over $131 million — an increase of over 30% over 2017, and 183% for the past three years. The new Inc. ranking is an improvement over 2018, in which CALI came in at number 2,370.
Each year Inc. recognizes the fastest growing private companies in America based on revenue over a three-year time frame. Inclusion on the list more than once, let alone 11 times in a row, is no easy feat. Of the tens of thousands of companies that apply, only a fraction have made the list more than once, and only two tenths of a percent have made it 11 times.
Summer 2019 also saw CALI notch its 10th year on the San Diego Business Journal’s annual Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies list, another elite grouping in which the company ranked #54.
Remarking on the news, President and CEO Doug Jackson says, “Team CALI and our partners continue to bring it home. The building materials and home improvement landscape is not an easy one, and being able to note growth of any kind is a big deal — let alone growth that gets you recognized on national lists. It says a lot about who we are and these very unique modes of operation we’ve created. I couldn’t be prouder of this company and its people who continue to innovate, push themselves, and lead from the front of the pack.”
