NEW YORK — This week, Inc. magazine ranked Nickell Rental No. 217 in Construction on its 36th annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest- growing private companies in America. Overall, Nickell moved up to the No. 3632 spot, making their name known for the third year in a row on this acclaimed list. Nickell Rental is one of two traditional rental companies on the list including Durante Rentals — fellow members in the ARA — and is following in the footsteps of other well-known companies such as Yelp, Zillow, Microsoft, Linked In and many more that gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“Being on the list three years in a row is a surreal achievement,” says Josh Nickell, CEO of Nickell Rental. “It shows we aren’t just a one-hit wonder, but rather a driving force in the industry, and it’s our amazing team that is behind that wheel. We care deeply about the success of the individuals on our team, which spills over into the level of care that we give to our customers.”

The 2017 Inc. 5000 list, revealed on the Inc. website, is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481 percent.

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion and, collectively, the companies on the list generated more than half a million jobs in the last three years.

“The Inc. 5000 is persuasive evidence that shows the American Dream is still alive,” says Eric Schurenberg, Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision are the keys to success, and I believe them.

“Consistently hitting higher targets requires people who are passionate about their work and leaders who are passionate about their team,” Nickell said. “It is important for us to take opportunities that invest in the growth and success of our team. By doing this, we have seen a positive ripple effect that has expanded outwards into the success of our clients and ultimately our growth. We feel truly blessed.”
