Quickparts, the leading provider of custom-manufactured plastic and metal parts, has been named to the Inc. 500 list of America’s fastest growing private companies for 2004.
“It’s an honor for us to be among the fastest growing companies in the US,” said Dr. Ronald L. Hollis, President & CEO of Quickparts.com, Inc. “Quickparts would like to thank our customers for their continued support over the past 5 years. They have really validated our ‘customer-first’ approach to manufacturing.”
Quickparts provides custom manufacturing services for engineers and designers looking to create plastic and metal parts from 3D CAD (computer-aided design) models. With the company’s proprietary QuickQuote® geometric analysis software, designers can get ‘instant online price quotes’ for prototypes to production parts directly when uploading 3D models to Quickparts.com.
Since the launch of Quickparts.com in 1999, Quickparts has delivered more than 100,000 instant quotes, earning the business of over 3,500 customers, including General Electric, NASA and Whirlpool. In making the Inc. 500, Quickparts had a four year average annual sales growth of 110%.
To be eligible for this year's Inc. 500, companies had to be independent and privately held through their fiscal year 2003, have had at least $200,000 in net sales in the base year of 1999 for Inc. 500 alumni and 2000 for new applicants, and $2 million in net sales for 2003. In addition, their 2003 sales had to exceed 2002 sales.
Over the years, the Inc. 500 has identified the next generation of world-class companies, with Microsoft, Stonyfield Farms, Timberland, Oracle, The Princeton Review, Morningstar, E* Trade, Intuit, and Domino’s Pizza all appearing on the list before they became industry powerhouses.
Hollis attributes Quickparts’ inclusion in the Inc. 500 in its first year of eligibility to the company’s unconventional approach to manufacturing, “Traditional parts manufacturers focus primarily on the process and neglect the designer’s needs. Quickparts is focused on making the process of buying custom-designed parts as easy as buying a book online. We invest heavily to find the best people, processes and technology in the industry. In the end, the customer is our paycheck.”
