Air Compressor Services Ranks #18 on Fastest Growing Companies

Air Compressor Services (ACS) was named #18 on Integrated Media Publishing's "Fastest Growing Companies in South Carolina" list. This was a leap from #38 on the 2022 list.

To earn eligibility, companies had to be headquartered in South Carolina, have been in operation for at least three fiscal years, and have reported revenues of over $3 Million in the most recent reported year. Also taken into consideration was employee headcount.

“We are pleased to honor these South Carolina companies that contribute so much to our economy and to making South Carolina a great place to live and work,” said Lori Coon, publisher of Greenville Business Magazine, Columbia Business Monthly, and Charleston Business Magazine. “We congratulate these companies for what they have accomplished.”

Integrated Media Publishing, publisher of Greenville Business Magazine, Columbia Business Monthly, and Charleston Business Magazine, partners with The Capital Corporation to honor these South Carolina companies. The program is in its 22nd year.

"This award speaks volumes to the trajectory of ACS," commented ACS Founder Neal Shade. "We have been selective in hiring what we feel are some of the best people in the United States. Not only does this group care deeply for one another, but it's evident that their talent is directly translating to our bottom line growth." 

This is the second consecutive year that ACS has won this award and the fourth total award ACS has received as a "Fastest Growing Company" in the last two years. Earlier this year, ACS received national recognition as an Inc. 5000 company and ranked #4 on the South Carolina "Best Places to Work" list.
