Oakland, CA — Inc. magazine this month ranked FATHOM™, the nation’s fastest-growing 3D printing and rapid prototype production center and top performing Stratasys 3D printer distributor of Northern California and Pacific Northwest, NO. 369 on its 32nd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the most rapidly expanding private companies in the United States. The additive manufacturing expert placed #9 in Top 100 Manufacturing Companies, #22 in the San Francisco Metro Area, and #70 in Top 100 California Companies.
"Our team is very excited to be recognized by Inc., and we are celebrating this award by celebrating our customers,” said FATHOM™ Principal Rich Stump. “Fathom’s continuous growth is a direct result of our collaboration with other fast growing companies, and we will continue to be focused on providing them with a complete experience that gets products to market faster and more efficiently."

The Inc. 500|5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500|5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
The 2013 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 20 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 918.59% in sales growth. The Inc. 500’ s aggregate revenue is $14.1 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1739 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 52,100 people and generated over 44,912 jobs in the past three years.
