Without Proforma’s support and resources, our talented sales team and loyal suppliers and clients, we would not have been able to experience and sustain such fast growth.”

To qualify for the 2017 Inc. 5000, businesses must be privately-owned and based in the United States. Only business with at least $100,000 in sales by March 31, 2013 and $2 million in 2016 were eligible. More than 40 Proforma businesses reached the growth qualifications to apply in 2017.
