Benchworks Named to Inc. Magazine’s 36th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”

“We are honored to receive this award again for our consistent rapid growth,” says Thad Bench Sr., CEO of Benchworks. “We could not have achieved this milestone without the help of all our terrific employees at Safe Chain and Benchworks Marketing. Our goal is to continue to advance our role as a commercialization partner and connect with other potential affiliates. We are working toward that goal through planned strategic growth.”

Safe Chain, a Benchworks Company, continues to thrive and it sets Benchworks apart from other agencies and pharmaceutical distribution companies. Benchworks offers more than marketing, helping clients build out operations, providing support during mergers and acquisitions, and introducing clients to manufacturing partners and sources of capital.

Companies on the 2017 list will be honored at the 36th annual Inc. 5000 conference October 10 – 12 in Palm Desert, California. 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 http://www.inc.com/inc5000.

About the Inc. 5000

Methodology
The 2017 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2013 to 2016. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2013. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2016. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2013 is $100,000; the minimum for 2016 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
