Logo - http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20161115/439630LOGO "Our success and rapid growth are attributed to the trust we've earned from our customers based on our high-value combination of quality services and best-in-class customer experience," said Dr. Steve Sun, chief executive officer of GENEWIZ. "With our commitment to scientific excellence and as a proven genomics partner, research scientists rely on GENEWIZ's proprietary protocols, value-added advantages, broad suite of genomics services, and technical acumen to accommodate their evolving research needs."

The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a three-year growth of 433%, and the companies collectively generated approximately 8% of all jobs created in the economy in the same period. "The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great - usually from scratch. That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails." Complete results of the Inc. 5000 can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. Methodology The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent--not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies--as of December 31, 2015.
