• Agromin On Inc.'s Annual List of 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies - Thursday, September 22, 2011 at

  • Inc. magazine ranked Agromin as one of the country's fastest growing private companies in its fifth annual Inc. 500|5000 (September 2011 issue). Agromin was ranked 65th in environmental services (10th in California) and 4,112 overall. Agromin manufactures earth-friendly soil products for farmers, landscapers and gardeners using renewal organic material from over 50 California communities. It is one of the largest organic recyclers in the state.

    To qualify for consideration, companies had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. Inc. ranked companies based on three-year growth from 2007 through 2010. During that period, Agromin experienced a 29 percent growth in revenue from $11.6 million to $14.9 million while adding 21 new jobs.

     The companies on the Inc. 5000 reported creating 350,000 jobs in the past three years "While large corporations were shedding jobs, small businesses were adding them. The accomplishments of those on this list prove that innovation and job creation comes from smaller companies," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin CEO. "Agromin is honored to be recognized."
