The median growth rate for the 2020 list rests at an impressive 165 percent.

Spear Power Systems is excited to rank among its fellow businesses with strong growth and sustained business – especially in these trying times. Spear’s CEO and co-founder, Jeff Kostos, had this to say of the news: “Spear is very proud to have received this honor by Inc. Magazine. Our growth is the result of a lot of hard work from smart folks – including support from key stakeholders such as our investors, customers, suppliers, and our incredible associates. The fact that we are focused on both transforming our global infrastructure to something that is more sustainable as well as enhancing the security of our nation and its allies is a pretty great feeling as well.”

Spear ranked 2,320 on Inc.’s list of America’s top 5000 fastest growing companies with a three-year revenue growth rate of over 180 percent – 15 percentage points above the median growth rate. While 2020 has slowed business on a global scale, Spear has continued to move forward with a number of new projects including production of energy storage systems for Washington State Ferries, Niagara Falls’ Maid of the Mist ferries, as well as several defense programs. Spear reports that it has invested significantly in order to sustain growth while providing safe and stable working conditions for all employees; it has received local civic awards for its approach to protecting worker safety during the pandemic.
