Inc. revealed today that Air Compressor Services ranks No. 3077 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy's most dynamic segment - its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

"We are seeking to create a culture where our employees have the opportunity to achieve personal and professional goals that they never dreamed were possible, which ultimately affects our customer experience," commented ACS Founder Neal Shade. "We firmly believe our growth as an organization is a direct result of our team being excited to come to work on a daily basis and putting the needs of our customers first."

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year's top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year's Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

"Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic," says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. "To make the Inc. 5000 - with the fast growth that requires - is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future."

Last year, in 2022, ACS was No. 3,718 on the Inc. 5000. This is also the second consecutive year that ACS has placed top ten (No. 4) in the Best Places to Work in SC, an award that was announced just a week before Inc.'s 5000 list.

"We have gotten to where we are because we have hired the right people, earned trust and delivered exceptional value to our customers," said Chief Operating Officer Joey Grigsby. "In speaking about our culture, we are a team in every sense of the word, as each position and team member is a valuable part of the whole. Our environment is a place where innovation is rewarded and where collaboration is recognized. Mistakes, when made in the name of progress, are just not that big of a deal because we have a team of problem solvers who are backing each other up."
