Motivators Lands on Inc.’s 5,000 Fastest-growing Private Companies List
Westbury, New York-based Motivators announced with a growth of 321.2 percent since 2003 the company ranked 1,168 on the Inc. 5,000 list of of fastest growing U.S. companies. In addition to receiving this prestigious honor, the company was also ranked 93 of the Top 100 Businesses in N.Y., N.J. and Long Island.
“It’s an honor to be recognized on the same list that has recognized innovators such as GoDaddy and Microsoft,” said CEO Ken Laffer, MAS. “The hard work and dedication of our employees is what brought us to this point, and I’m extremely proud of them for all of their accomplishments.” Laffer founded the company in 1979 and introduced the company Web site www.motivators.com in 1995. In 2003, the site relaunched as a completely secure, e-commerce-enabled portal that allowed customers to complete every step of the buying process online.
In as much as the company is dedicated to providing quality branding solutions to its customers, it’s equally dedicated to keeping the portal up-to-date with the latest technological innovations. Earlier this year, the company launched Motivators TV, the first online channel dedicated to promotional products. Product demonstration videos allow customers to experience features unable to be highlighted by a simple picture. “Innovation is at the core of our thinking all of the time. Reaching our customers and providing them with extraordinary service from our seamless operation is also a large contributor to our success,” added Laffer.
While other industries experienced a slump in the past year due to the slowing economy, the promotional product industry has thrived, with sales totaling $19.4 billion dollars in 2007, up 3.5 percent from 2007. “The industry is large and we do not see companies curbing their appetite for promotional products,” concluded Laffer.
