NEW YORK, Aug. 24 Inc. magazine today ranked Comfort Medical Supply, LLC of Ormond Beach, FL NO. 461 on its 28th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy--America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, GoDaddy, Under Armour, Jamba Juice, American Apparel, Oracle, and hundreds of other powerhouses gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.
Comfort Medical Supply, LLC is a national supplier of home medical equipment and is accredited by the Healthcare Quality Association on Accreditation (HQAA). An approved Medicare supplier, Comfort supplies to all lower 48 states and specializes in power mobility, drug-free pain therapy and orthotic back support devices. Comfort was founded in 2005 and acquired Southeast Mobility Group, LLC in January 2007. The company has continued to grow despite the many obstacles the home medical equipment industry has endured over past years due to legislation affecting Medicare and health care. "We attribute our growth and success to our ability to be 'nimble,' react quickly to change and--more importantly--our dedicated employees who possess an entrepreneurial spirit and take personal ownership in their work," said Craig Daley, CEO and Managing Member. "We anticipate continued expansion of market share as we develop and implement unique and creative marketing strategies."
The 2010 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. magazine (available on newsstands August 17 to November 15) and on Inc.com, reported aggregate revenue of $18.4 billion--up significantly from last year's $13.7 billion--and a median three-year growth rate of 880.5 percent. The companies on this year's list are also responsible for creating more than 55,000 jobs since their founding, making the Inc. 500 perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the overall U.S. economy. The largest company on the list, flat-panel-TV maker Vizio, broke the $2 billion revenue mark. Complete results of the Inc. 500, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com.
