Inc. magazine ranked BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY as No. 1079 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, a ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“We are truly humbled to be included on a list as reputable as the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row,” said Michael Risich, founder and CEO of BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY. “Since our launch in 2009, BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY has strived to be an innovative force in a traditional industry. I am not only very proud of the growth and success that the company has seen since last year, but also the transformation the automotive industry is beginning to see with the advancement of technology in the auto repair shop. It would not have been possible without the hardwork and dedication of the BOLT ON team.”
BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY also is ranked 24th on the list among the top companies in the Philadelphia area. Products like Mobile Manager Pro – a tablet-based software solution that allows managers, service advisers and technicians to interact with their shop management systems created a three-year sales growth of 391 percent and $4.5 million in 2016 revenue.
“Of tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc 5000 over the years, only a small fraction have made the list more than once,” said Eric Schurenberg, president and editor-in-chief of Inc Media. “A mere one in three have made the list two times.”

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” said Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows; but without it, free enterprise fails.”
