ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Two Marines Moving, providing local and long-distance moving services to residential and business customers in the Washington D.C. metro area, has been named for the first time to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in America.
This annual listing, compiled by Inc. magazine, the award-winning, nationally recognized monthly publication devoted to entrepreneurialism, represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Inc. magazine ranked Two Marines Moving No.1263 on its seventh annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
This ranking places Two Marines Moving as #36 in the Logistics & Transportation category nationally and as #91 overall in the Washington DC Metro area. The ranking is based on the growth of revenue and number of employees in a three-year period (2010 – 2012). While the median company on the list increased sales more than 140% since the start of 2010, Two Marines Moving experienced a 324% growth in those three years.
"I'm ecstatic about being featured for the first time on the Inc. list of fastest growing companies in America. I've been reading Inc. magazine since I was 13. I've always looked up to the entrepreneurs, risk takers, and job creators featured on the list. I'm humbled and driven to be in the company of Bezos, Zuckerberg, and Swinmurn," says Nick Baucom, Founder and President.
"Our biggest challenge has always been finding great employees because our standards are so high. We're really working on retention of current employees and recruiting new employees to keep the growth going. We've done 10% across the board raises for our entire staff to include movers, dispatchers, and sales personnel in the last quarter. Two Marines Moving is expanding into the storage market within the next 30 days with an eye on being on the INC 5000 list for years to come!"
About Two Marines Moving
Two Marines Moving is one of Washington D.C. metro area’s highly regarded providers of local and long-distance moving services to residential and business customers, with annual revenue in the $3 million range. Baucom started the company in 2008 in order to: (A) satisfy the demand for a quality moving experience sorely needed in the metro area, and (B) to find a way to hire and continue working with Marines upon his honorable discharge from the Marine Corps; thus the company name and branding strategy that has helped propel growth. Baucom hires military veterans that take pride in their punctuality, professionalism, and proficiency and due to company’s growth has been able to hire 50 additional employees in the last 3 years and now has a 75 employee staff. Customers take comfort in the knowledge that his veterans have faced tougher missions in the past than the move at hand. The company has an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau and is listed on the vetted Angie’s List; it also has been the subject of an NBC newscast. The company has completed over 10,000 moves to date, all with a very low damage claim rate. Like us on Facebook.
