Visalia-based CalCom Solar is ranked third in the nation on the latest Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.

It may the highest ranking ever for a Central Valley company on the annual list.

CalCom Solar works with farms, dairies and water districts helping design and build solar energy projects.

The solar company reported revenue growth of 31,634 percent from its birth in 2012 to 2015. The company enjoyed revenue of $33.5 million in 2015 and it forecast nearly doubling that figure this year.

“We are thrilled to be ranked third on this year’s Inc. 500 list. In particular, we are honored to be in the same league as prior Inc. 500 honorees that are now leading U.S. companies,” said CalCom Solar CEO Dylan Dupre in a statement. “I am excited about the company’s strategic direction and our commitment to delivering world class projects, technology and exceptional customer service. We’ve been profitable since our inception, and going forward our business model emphasizes a disciplined and balanced approach to growth and profitability.” 

The top Fresno-based company on the list is PGM, which ranked No. 54. It also came in second among the top construction companies. Also launched in 2012, PGM saw growth of 4,843 percent in its first three years and enjoyed revenue of $13 million last year.

Two local companies within the health industry also made the list.

For the third consecutive year, Visalia’s Pro-PT, which provides physical therapy services, made the list ranking No. 3,045. Last year, the company ranked No. 2,749 and in 2014, No. 3,285. The company reported $6.8 million in revenue in 2015.

Also returning to the list for the fourth year in a row is Fresno’s Integrated Prescription Management, which ranked No. 3,171 this year. The company, which develops and manages pharmaceutical benefit plans for employers and consumers, enjoyed $110.4 million in revenue in 2015. Integrated Prescription Management ranked No. 1,515 on the Inc. 5000 list in 2015, No. 1,221 in 2014 and No. 380 in 2013.

Ranking at No. 4,064 is Fresno’s PrideStaff staffing firm, which brought in $195.1 million in revenue in 2015.

Making the list for the seventh consecutive year was Fresno’s BCT Consulting, an IT company that provides technology services including web design, data forensics and mobile application development. BCT Consulting enjoyed $7.4 million in revenue in 2015 and ranked No. 4,090 on this year’s list. In 2015, the company ranked No. 4,290.

Rounding out the Central Valley companies at No. 4,871 is Clark Bros., a Dos Palos-based company that does heavy civil contracting for solar sites and builds water and wastewater treatment plants for municipalities and privately owned facilities. Clark Bros. enjoyed $18 million in revenue in 2015.

Each year Inc. Magazine produces a list of the 5,000 fastest-growing U.S. companies, ranking them by 3-year revenue growth. This year was the 35th annual list.
