DETROIT, December 9, 2010 – IPR, a leading national provider of underground rehabilitation solutions with offices throughout the United States, has secured positions on some of the most respected business rankings lists, including the Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing privately-held companies in the country, the Crain’s Detroit Business list of Largest Environmental Companies in Southeastern Michigan and the Crain’s Private 200. IPR President and CEO Joseph A. Cutillo made the announcement.
This is the third consecutive year that IPR has been recognized by each list. Due to an increased demand by municipalities for infrastructure stabilization and repair, IPR has seen a tremendous growth in revenue and market expansion in recent years. These demands and subsequent achievements have helped IPR gain the recognition necessary to be named on the Crain’s Detroit Business Private 200, a list of the fastest-growing privately-owned companies in metro Detroit, and the Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list that recognizes privately held firms that have demonstrated substantial growth over the past three years.
IPR was also included on the Crain’s Detroit Business list of Largest Environmental Companies for its best practices in green technology, including its non-invasive Expanda spiral-wound lining technology, which rehabilitates existing pipes from above ground and without releasing harmful chemicals into the environment.
“It is an honor for IPR to be recognized on these highly regarded lists,” said Cutillo. “We take great pride in our services, our workers and the resulting long-term positive effects associated with providing municipalities and communities with the best in rehabilitation solutions. We take satisfaction in utilizing the green technologies that contribute to both improving our site efficiencies and supporting healthier communities.”
