Inc. magazine has ranked Atlas Oil Company number 4,424 on its third annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
When the list is sorted by revenue, Atlas Oil Company is one of only two Michigan-based companies to make the Top 20, coming in at number 20. The list represents the most comprehensive look at an important segment of the economy-America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.
“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about both young companies that are achieving success, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Jim Melloan, project manager for Inc. 5000. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”
“We’re very proud to have been included in this year’s Inc. 5000,” added Sam Simon, chairman and CEO of Atlas Oil Company, which is a national petroleum products distributor that services businesses, municipalities and governments in 19 states and Ontario, Canada, and meets the retail fuel needs of nearly 400 gasoline service stations throughout Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. “We look at this recognition as another way to validate not only our strategic plan and ability to execute on our growth objectives, but also as a means to affirm the hard work and entrepreneurial spirit that permeates the culture at Atlas Oil,” Simon added.
