JetCo Federal Secures Spot on Inc. 5000 List

JetCo Federal ranks No. 2960 on the Inc. 5000 with three-year revenue growth of 133 percent

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH (August 12, 2020) — Grand Rapids-based supply chain management and warehouse supply company, JetCo Federal, was recently ranked by Inc. magazine in its annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. The list represents the most successful organizations within the American economy’s most dynamic segment — independent small businesses.

JetCo Federal, a local woman-owned small business, was ranked no. 2960 with three-year revenue growth of 133 percent.

According to Sue Tellier, President at JetCo Federal, the growth is attributed to the niche they credibly hold with their customer base.

“Our successful and extensive experience with the Department of Defense earns respect from warehousing decision-makers,” said Tellier. “We embrace complex supply chain challenges, we deliver on time, and we offer blunt, creative ideas that resonate.”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared to prior years. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved a three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median growth rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

“Our significant growth doesn’t surprise me. We have tenacious employees and a scrappy, no-whining culture,” said Tellier. “We’re not done growing, either.”

The Power of Connections: Cultivating Authentic Relationships

Building a strong relationship with your current and future customers is a crucial step a company should take to be successful in their industry. At JetCo Federal, we take creating connections seriously. Transparent communication is ingrained into our company, and we establish and cultivate authentic relationships with our suppliers and customers.

Why?

To us, it’s not just a business relationship. Our interactions are human-to-human. They’re meaningful, personal, and transparent. We understand that when you cultivate strong relationships, it only brings benefits to both parties.

Authentic Relationships

How does our team cultivate authentic relationships with our suppliers and customers? Our team:

  • Listens to the needs of our end-user;
  • Asks the right questions to ensure our customers are satisfied;
  • Communicates consistently;
  • Displays integrity with every interaction;
  • Is respectful of our suppliers and customers’ time;
  • And builds a trustworthy relationship with everyone we come in contact with.

We take these steps with every relationship we build. Our suppliers and customers appreciate the time we take to cultivate the relationship, and when our suppliers and customers are happy, we’re happy.

A Unique Team

At the core of our company is the drive to re-win every day. Whether it’s winning a large contract with the government, solving a simple sourcing problem, or completing fast turn-around times, our team wants to win. We’re also not afraid to take on complex projects, which makes us different than our competitors.

Our team is unique, and our connections are authentic. This is a powerful combination that leads to satisfied customers, a strong company culture, and a robust network. Without our authentic relationships, we wouldn’t be able to do the work that we do now. The government wouldn’t be buying, and our customers wouldn’t be satisfied. But they are buying, and they are satisfied. And that’s in part due to the power of our connections.

Establishing and maintaining authentic relationships is at the core of what we do. Connections are powerful, and when you have strong connections, you have trust and loyalty not only within your company but with your end-users as well.
