LeafFilter™ North, Inc., the nation's leading gutter protection company, has been featured in the inaugural ranking of Inc. Magazine's Hire Power Awards, recognizing private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.

LeafFilter™ experienced considerable growth from 2008 to 2011, placing it among the Top 10 private business job creators within the construction industry. The Hudson, Ohio-based company finished No.7 in Inc.'s Hire Power Award construction category with significant development and the total number of jobs added over the past three years.

LeafFilter™ is the nation's top-rated gutter protection system and is guaranteed to keep gutters clog free. LeafFilter™ distributes, installs, and services gutter protection systems that have a patented microfilter screen that keeps leaves and debris from accumulating in gutters. The LeafFilter™ gutter protection system utilizes surgical-grade, stainless steel micromesh protection that is completely sealed shut, allowing only water into the gutter system.

Inc. is the only major business media brand aimed solely at CEOs of fast-growing private companies. The Hire Power Awards will appear in Inc.'s December/January issue, as well as the brand's web site,

“The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 – an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession,” explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “And it isn't just the big guys that are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50 million in annual revenue make up nearly one-third of the Hire Power list.”
