Suburban Testing Labs Ranks on 2014 Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America

Suburban Testing Labs, a leader in environmental lab testing, announced today that Inc. magazine has ranked the company number 3556 on its “Inc. 5000” list of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

Suburban Testing Labs has achieved double digit growth over recent years, and over the past 10 years added 40 new jobs at its Reading, PA headquarters.  A rank of 3556 may seem far from the top, but, according to the US Small Business Administration, there are 23 million small businesses in America.  That puts the company  in the top percent of all businesses in America for growth.

“The Suburban Testing Labs team is very excited about being recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in America,” stated President and Owner, Rich C. Stump, III.

“Our team works hard every day providing first class customer support for our client base.  This award really belongs to them,” stated Client Services Director and wife of Mr. Stump, Sara Kuzma-Stump.

Over the years, Suburban Testing Labs’ growth has been achieved through organic sales efforts in Pennsylvania, not through mergers and acquisitions, and they have recently expanded their efforts beyond PA borders into New Jersey and Maryland.  And, with Mr. and Mrs. Stump’s ambition, the efforts towards expansion are not slowing down.

“We are working tirelessly every day to support continued growth by investing in new technology and employee training.  Most of all, we are working to ensure our existing and long-time-loyal client base continue to receive the personalized services they are used to experiencing with us,” said Mr. Stump.
