QCMI Makes Inc. 500|5000 List with Three Years Sustained Growth

Quality Controlled Manufacturing Inc. is pleased to announce it achieved 18 percent sales growth for 2008 through 2011. This revenue increase placed QCMI on the Inc. 500|5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies.

Santee, Calif. (PRWEB) – August 30, 2012 Quality Controlled Manufacturing Inc., a leading precision machining manufacturer, is pleased to announce it ranked No. 4618 on the exclusive Inc. 500|5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies. QCMI achieved its rank by having 18 percent revenue growth over three years – 2008 through 2011.

Founded in 1978 by Bob Grande, the Santee, California precision manufacturer currently has 96 employees. Forty of the company’s employees were added during the Inc. magazine qualification timeframe. QCMI’s 65,000 square foot manufacturing facility has nearly a million hours of machining capacity. The company 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|5000 list represents a comprehensive look at an important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.  In a stagnant economic environment, with the Great Recession two of the three qualifying years, the companies on this year’s list created over 400,000 jobs and collectively reported revenue reaching $299 billion.

“From my perspective, the success we’ve had is due to our employees who make our products’ transformation possible. Whether they are administration, manufacturing, support or management — all of our people work together to insure we are producing quality components and assemblies,” said CEO Bob Grande. “During the Inc. criteria timeframe, as jobs and contracts were sent overseas, the team of skilled craftsmen at QCMI kept the machines running.  Due to their efforts at producing quality products in a timely manner, business remained profitable and steady — as we saw many shops forced to close.”

“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. Editor in Chief, Eric Schurenberg.
