EarthLED Recognized Among Inc. Magazine's Inc. 500 list of America's 500 Fastest Growing Private Companies

Golden, Colorado (PRWEB) August 24, 2012
EarthLED, is proud to announce its inclusion on Inc. Magazine’s annual list of the top 500 fastest growing companies in the US. Ranked at #435, EarthLED’s inclusion on this prestigious list puts it in the company of industry giants Microsoft, Oracle, Vizio and Zappos.com – all of whom have been included on the list in previous years. In addition, Inc. Magazine has also recognized EarthLED as #22 in its retail category and #11 among companies in the Denver Metro area.
The addition of EarthLED to the Inc. 500/5000 list comes on the heels of its staggering 859% growth over the past three fiscal years. Founded in 2007 by Mark, Charles and Martha Costigliola, a Father, Mother and Son team. EarthLED was one of the first online retailers of LED lighting. As LEDs have continued to evolve and improve, EarthLED has expanded its selection to now encompass the largest variety from the biggest manufacturers including CREE, Sylvania, Lighting Science, Toshiba, TCP, FEIT Electric and LEDnovation.
Speaking on the distinction, Managing Director and CEO, Mark Costigliola believes the company’s growth to be indicative of a larger shift in energy conscious consumers, businesses and public entities. “Individuals have become more attuned to their personal spending and have looked to us to help bring down their electric bills, and much the same – corporations and government operations alike have needed to cut budgets across the board. In line with those goals, we’ve presented them with the opportunity to save a significant amount of capital in one of the most increasingly sought after spaces for budgetary savings: energy, and the use of lighting in particular.”
He adds that, “We were founded based on the premise that not only would LED lighting grow to become a viable alternative, but further, an eventual necessity rather than a novelty. Our inclusion on Inc’s list of fastest growing companies solidifies that our initial hypothesis has come to fruition in the marketplace: people want a cost-effective solution to cut spending, and our light bulbs have given them the chance to cut bills and allocate funds to other places where they’d not have otherwise been available for use. We're were pleased to be honored for our hard work in this, our fifth year of business. We look forward with anticipation with what the next five years will bring.”
EarthLED has developed its presence in the public, private, retail and wholesale sectors alike.
