MOUNT LAUREL, NJ (AUG. 23, 2012) – Inc. magazine this week ranked WebiMax No. 1 in New Jersey as the fastest growing private company on its 31st annual Inc. 500 | 5000 list. There are approximately 153 New Jersey based private companies on this year’s Inc. 500 | 5000. The full list of top companies in New Jersey can be found here, courtesy of Inc. magazine. In addition, WebiMax ranked No. 37 overall in the United States, with a three-year sales growth of 5,651 percent.
Kenneth Wisnefski, New Jersey-based entrepreneur and founder / CEO of WebiMax, said “I am pleased to announce WebiMax is the fastest growing private company in New Jersey according to the Inc. 500, a highly reputable and respected name worldwide in publications.”
Wisnefski founded WebiMax in 2008 as a small startup and has since grown the company to employ more than 300 New Jersey residents in its four year history.
The 2012 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 21 to November 15 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to be founded in 2008, and have achieved a staggering minimum of 770% in sales growth. The Inc. 500’s aggregate revenue is $15.7 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,431 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 48,000 people and generated over 40,000 jobs in the past three years.

“We work with more than 800 clients worldwide and employ over 100 employees in our company headquarters, based in Mount Laurel, New Jersey,” states Wisnefski. “WebiMax’s growth is a result of our highly innovative products and services offerings, in addition to our success in delivering high quality services to our clients.”
While the company has always been headquartered in New Jersey, Wisnefski indicates that he has been approached by other towns and municipalities across the United States to relocate WebiMax but Wisnefski continues to turn down these opportunities.
“Ever since 2009 when our growth skyrocketed nearly 1,000 percent, year-over-year, WebiMax has received generous offers to relocate our business however we remain based in New Jersey and will continue to operate out of this great State,” states Wisnefski. “Being the number 1 fastest growing private company in New Jersey is an honor for us and I thank those at Inc. magazine for this accolade.”
