BERKLEY, Mich. — Inc. magazine has named the Certified Restoration Drycleaning Network (CRDN) to its list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. for the third year in a row.
CRDN specializes in restoring garments and other fabric items damaged by smoke, fire, water, mold or other contaminants. The company reported growth of 72.1%, which it claims is the result of the ongoing education of the insurance industry about the cost-effectiveness of restoring damaged textiles rather than replacing them.
The Inc. 5,000 is an extension of the magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list. It recognizes businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as some smaller firms.
“We are extremely pleased to be acknowledged by Inc. magazine for the third straight year,” says Chip Bifano, CRDN president. “This recognition validates the continued efforts of our team at every level — from the corporate office to each local CRDN business — to understand the needs of the insurance industry and provide a valuable solution. Our focus on education and highly professional service has enabled us to make a positive impact on the lives of those we serve — namely, insurance adjusters and their customers.
“It is also very rewarding to be a part of noteworthy growth for each of our members coast-to-coast, and to support their efforts to build sustainable, meaningful businesses.”
