Based on remarkable growth over the past three years, ORBIT ranked number 4,471 on the list with a 19% growth rate. The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.

"We are honored to make the list for the 4th year in a row and wish to thank Inc. Magazine for its dedication to celebrating the growth of private companies," says Steve McFarland, ORBIT's president. "We've all heard the politicians say it but, even so, it's true. Private companies, many of which are on this year's list, will be doing the heavy lifting of getting our economy back on track. At ORBIT, our clients are almost exclusively private companies. Whatever phase they're in - start-ups, accelerated growth, mature or transforming - we're proud to serve this market and leverage technology to create the competitive advantage every company needs."

"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."

How the 2010 Inc. 5000 Companies Were Selected
