Cali Bamboo® Makes Inc. 5000 for Fifth Year in a Row, Earns Honor Roll
Now a five time honoree of Inc. Magazine’s 5000 Fastest Growing Companies list, Cali Bamboo joins rare club
SAN DIEGO – August 26, 2013 – Cali Bamboo, a leading manufacturer of green building materials made primarily from bamboo, has been named to Inc. Magazine’s “Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest Growing Companies for the fifth year in a row, and in doing so, earns the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll designation.
Only a small percentage of companies have ever made the prestigious Inc. 500/5000 List and only a rare few have done so five straight years. Cali Bamboo has earned its way onto this list every year it has been eligible. Founded in 2004, the San Diego company ranked #4175, reflecting 62% growth over the past three years.
“We are elated to have earned this recognition, and to do so during a period of years which were economically challenged makes me even more proud of our team and our mission. We’re extremely optimistic about the years ahead.” said Jeff Goldberg, Founder and CEO of Cali Bamboo.
Now in its 32st 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 2013 Inc. 5000 List are ranked according to the percentage growth of their annual revenue over a three-year period — from 2009 to 2012. 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 2009, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales.
