Promotional products companies have become an established presence on Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000 ranking of the country’s fastest-growing private companies, and that trend continues into 2018.

Twelve of Cleveland, Ohio-based Proforma’s affiliated distributors made the magazine’s list: Proforma IdeaPress, No.448; Proforma Springboard Promotions, No.626; The Branding Agency Powered by Proforma, No.696; MCS Marketing powered by Proforma, No.1237; Proforma Durkee, No.1551; Proforma Irvine Group, No.1711; Proforma Angelini + Diamond Solutions, No.1769; LogoGram, No.1785; Proforma 3rd Degree Marketing, No.2033; Proforma BrandCentric Solutions, No.2602; The Idea Box – Powered by Proforma, No.3101; and Proforma Graphic Services, No.4719.

"This is a great honor to be named once again to the most prestigious list of fastest growing companies in the U.S.,” says Greg Muzzillo, founder of Proforma. “We are proving year after year that we are a sustainable business, but perhaps more importantly a scalable one, helping owners reach their million and multi-million-dollar dreams through our extensive resource tools and support. We are very proud of these 26 owners, representing 12 businesses, who continue to be committed to their success, and we are grateful for their contributions to Proforma’s overall continued growth.”

Other industry companies on the list include Origaudio, No. 832; Brandito, No.2235, and MRL Promotions, No. 2800.

"If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it is unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice," said James Ledbetter, Inc. editor in chief. "The lines of business may come and go or come and stay. What doesn't change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives."

To qualify for the 2018 Inc. 5000, businesses must be privately owned and based in the United States. Only businesses with at least $100,000 in sales in 2014 and $2 million in 2017 were eligible.
