Mid-South Metallurgical in Murfreesboro is now ranked number 4782 on Inc. Magazine’s sixth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America’s independent entrepreneurs. Mid-South Metallurgical joins Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani, Giftcards.com, and famed hatmaker Tilly’s, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
Demand for Mid-South’s metal treating services is dependent upon the level of manufacturing production and construction activity. The heat treating industry, like most industries, suffered the recession with industry-wide revenues declining by over 30%. Mid-South Metallurgical carefully navigated this downturn posting 13% growth over the last three years. The remarkable performance over the last few years is attributed to Mid-South’s diverse customer base, a relentless focus on continuously improving quality and service levels, and continued investment in capacity and capability.
“Given the nature of our business, we serve the manufacturing sector in relative obscurity – operating quietly behind the scenes. To be recognized and included in this exclusive list of high performing companies is a humbling honor. Mid-South Metallurgical’s growth is a result of loyal customers and an organization committed to an unparalleled level of customer service in our industry,” said Clif Coleman, CEO of Mid-South Metallurgical.
