NEW YORK, NY, September 15, 2008 — ePromos Promotional Products today claimed a spot among the newly revealed Inc. 5000, a comprehensive ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing, privately owned companies in the United States. The company also placed among the Inc. 5000 in 2007, the assessment’s inaugural year.
“We continue to grow, thrive and hold a competitive edge in a crowded and tumultuous market for many reasons,” explains ePromos’ CEO and founder Jason Robbins, “but primary among them is our user-friendly technology, which makes it easy for people to find and order promotional products on the Web.”
The firm’s website, www.ePromos.com, showcases over 12,000 promotional products while offering case studies, tips and articles on running effective, successful promotions. “Not only do we help business owners and managers reach their promotional goals,” says Robbins, “but we also work hard to make the site a key attraction: if they want, customers can filter down in just a few clicks to see 42 different varieties of rubber-handled umbrellas.”
The ePromos.com website is also a five-time winner of the Promotional Products International Association (PPAI) Web Award, which recognizes member companies that have developed creative and effective promotional products websites.
ePromos and its fellow Inc. 5000 companies, with aggregate revenue of $185 billion and median three-year growth of 147 percent, act as engines of job growth in a declining economy: since their inception, the companies together have created more than 826,000 jobs. ePromos currently employees 80+ people in New York, Florida, Arizona and Minnesota — people whose efforts have helped the firm land its spot among the Inc. 5000.
“Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism,” says Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth.” ePromos is already seeking a spot on the third annual Inc. 5000-the company continues to look forward to accelerating the growth of the promotional products industry as it helps a diverse customer base improve the power of marketing and advertising efforts.
ePromos delivers impactful promotional products that help Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, not-for profits, associations, and academic institutions increase brand recognition. The company ranks in the top one percent of promotional products distributors in the U.S. and is a five-time winner of the Promotional Products Association International’s Best Web Site award, the industry’s highest honor. Based in New York with offices in Arizona, Florida, Minnesota and Massachusetts, ePromos serves a highly diversified global base of over 20,000 customers.
