Inc. Magazine Unveils Its Annual Exclusive List of

America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc.500|5000

Amyx, Inc. makes the list for the 3rd consecutive year

NEW YORK, August 23, 2011 -- Inc. magazine released the 2011 Inc. 5000 list and for the third consecutive year Amyx, Inc. has been named to the list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.  Based upon our 2011 revenue to date, we expect to make it again the next time the list is compiled.  The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Amyx  joins Spirit Airlines, television maker Vizio, Honest Tea, Dunkin Donuts and Metrokane, makers of the Rabbit corkscrew, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list. 

In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2011 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 94 percent. The companies on this year’s list report having created 350,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $366 billion, up 14 percent from last year.

 "Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward.  Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. magazine Editor Jane Berentson.

 Amyx is a privately held, small business federal contractor whose staff professionals deliver the highest level of acquisition and project management, systems engineering, business process transformation, and system integration and implementation solutions. All Amyx team members have superior technical skills, expert knowledge in multiple disciplines, and a strong belief that service to the government can make a difference.  In addition to being named to the Inc 5000 list, Amyx was also named as one of Top 500 Small Businesses in the U.S., Top 100 Small Businesses in the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2008, 2010 and 2011, and Future 50 winner in 2007.
