Benchworks Named to Inc. Magazine's Annual List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Continued growth places company on Inc. 5000 list for fourth time

PR Newswire

CHESTERTOWN, Md., Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Benchworks Inc. has once again been named to the Inc. 5000 list of America's fastest-growing private companies. Companies making the 2018 list, on average, grew sixfold since 2014, beating the overall economy's 11 percent growth for the same period.

The Inc. 5000 rankings are based on a three-year sales growth and revenue cycle. Making the list becomes harder every year as a company's revenue base grows. This marks the fourth year in a row Benchworks has made the list, demonstrating continued steady growth. Only one in six US companies that apply manages to make the list 4 times.

With a nod to that fact, Thad Bench Sr, Benchworks CEO, says, "Landing a spot on this prestigious list becomes more difficult over time for any company, requiring ever greater returns to hit the same mark. The fact that Benchworks has succeeded in making the list four years in a row speaks volumes about our commitment to intelligent growth."

For Benchworks, 2018 has been a foundational year. Taking a platform approach to its service offerings, the company has focused on building resources, refining strategies and enhancing processes to align the company for success in 2019 and beyond. For more about this strategic approach, visit

Companies on the 2018 list will be honored at the 37th annual Inc. 5000 conference October 17-19 in San Antonio. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region and other criteria, can be found at
