Access Display Group, Inc. a changeable signage frame and display manufacturing company has been named, for the fourth year in a row, by Inc. Magazine to its annual list of fastest growing companies in America.
The Inc. 5000 list recognizes private companies that have achieved the nation's strongest three-year median revenue growth. Access Display Group received the No.3376 spot on the Inc. 2012 list and ranked 119 on the manufacturing industry list.
"Four consecutive years of qualifying for Inc.'s list of fastest-growing companies is an incredible accomplishment that everyone in our growing company can take pride in.," said Charles Abrams, President of Access Display Group (ADG). "I'm proud to lead a dedicated, hard working team, and we're honored to receive this national recognition."
Access Display Group, founded in 1992, can attribute it's growth, especially in the last four years, by focusing most of its marketing efforts in offering display fixtures through a multitude of B2B e-commerce websites. This includes expanding product lines and offering more customization.
Craig Abrams, Director of Marketing and Sales explains "Although the overall economy is still a concern, we see opportunities that we feel confident to pursue. We've made a number of strategic decisions and investments in 2011 to expand our facilities, production space and capabilities. We employed higher caliber customer service personnel and developed stronger partnerships with our vendors, supplier partners and resellers."
In the companies' first decade it achieved much of its sales through conventional B2B marketing; tradeshows and trade publications. As a result, much of the success had been achieved within the retail store fixtures industry with many well known retail stores; small, regional and national chains. But after 911, with many chain stores either closing, contracting, or with limited capital improvement budgets, ADG needed a new strategy and direction.
Craig Abrams states "The Internet offered exciting possibilities and the change in direction we needed. Over several years, we created websites and the personnel needed to build and maintain these sites as well as the customer service to connect with new industries and buyers; including national and global corporations, financial institutions, medical centers, restaurants, hotels and resorts, theatres, federal and local government agencies, military bases, as well as new reseller partnerships.
"We pride ourselves on creating a unique product within the of signage display fixture industry. Our SwingFrame products continue to generate more sales and brings in a diversity of design projects" says Charles Abrams founder of the company.
