San Diego, CA (BUSINESS WIRE) September 07, 2007 -- TestCountry, a leading distributor of medical and diagnostics test kits, announced today that it has been named to the #239 spot on the 2007 Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing privately held businesses in the U.S. The company logged a three-year revenue growth of 972.7% by selling a wide array of collection kits for fertility and pregnancy, DNA and paternity, substance abuse, early disease detection and other purposes for both home and corporate users.
"Our growth is being driven by the escalating demand for fast, convenient and confidential home and corporate testing solutions, whether to help parents discreetly test children for drug use, help couples predict ovulation, or reunite families through DNA testing that can establish genetic ties," said Serhat Pala, President & CEO of TestCountry. "Being named to the Inc. 500 is a major achievement that is a credit to our quality products, our approach to the market, and the strength of our partner network."
The 2007 Inc. 500 list, published by Inc. magazine, measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent (not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies) as of December 31, 2006, with at least $200,000 in revenue in 2003 and $2 million in 2006.
"If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500," said Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. "These are the most innovative, dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones coming up with solutions to some of our most intractable ills, creating systems that let us conduct business faster and easier, and manufacturing products we soon discover we can't live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine's tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition."
