Inc. Magazine Unveils Its Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—Crown Laboratories Ranks 2035

August 17, 2021 - Johnson City, TN   Inc. magazine today revealed that Crown is No. 2035 on its 2021 Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Crown is again honored to be included on the list. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“Crown’s evolution over the past several years has been remarkable. We are delighted to be recognized with this distinction for the 8th time,” says Jeff Bedard, Crown’s President and CEO. “Being a part of this group of companies on the Inc. 5000 list is truly an honor. We are incredibly grateful for our outstanding employees and dedicated loyal customers who inspire us every day. I’d like to thank the entire Crown family who helped us make the list again.”

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
