QCMI Makes the Inc. 500|5000 List Two Consecutive Years with 55 Percent Revenue Growth
Santee, Calif. – August 30, 2013 Quality Controlled Manufacturing Inc., a leading precision machining manufacturer, is pleased to announce it made the Inc. 500|5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies two consecutive years. QCMI achieved its 4354 rank by achieving 55 percent revenue growth over three years – 2009 through 2012.
Founded in 1978 by Bob Grande, the Santee, California precision manufacturer is designated UTC Supplier Gold and specializes in providing a full spectrum of machining services from general to complex components, parts and assemblies — including all metals and exotic alloys. Some of the industries QCMI manufactures components for are aerospace, power generation, Department of Defense (DOD), oil and gas, marine, and heavy equipment.
The Inc. 500 list was created by the magazine in 1982 honoring the top 500 companies and was expanded to the top 5000 in 2007. The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012.
