A number of companies in the Greater Lehigh Valley have made it on Inc. 5,000 list of Fastest Growing Private Firms in America.

The highest ranking company from the region is Azzur Labs of Schnecksville, which came in at no. 132.
“It is an amazing feeling to achieve something this difficult in such a short period of time,” said Kym Fayor, president of Azzur Labs.

“Individuals are pursuing companies that inspire and support them in achieving purpose and fulfillment,” she said. “This makes it more important than ever for companies to continually strive to lead, empower and encourage.”
Also cracking the top 500 is National Brokers of America of Reading, which came in at no. 154; D&B Elite of Sinking Spring at no. 316 and LiveHelpNow of Bethlehem, which ranked no. 483.
