Inc. Magazine Reveals Annual List of

America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

Pittsburgh, August 17, 2021Inc. magazine today revealed that PS Solutions is No. 4428 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Within the IT Systems Development industry, PS Solutions was No. 677 nationally and No. 13 in the State of Pennsylvania.   Overall PS Solutions was No. 149 in Pennsylvania.

“We are thrilled to be selected as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S.  This is really about our people.  We have a great team of talented people who are responsible for our success, and this is certainly a reflection on what they do for us each and every day. The United States is a huge country, full of opportunity and to be singled out for this recognition is pretty amazing given the tremendous competition.” - Joe Merilli, Managing Partner

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

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 The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
