AME honored in Inc. magazine

Sept. 20, 2011

AME International has been recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest-growing private businesses. The five-year-old Brooksville, Fla.-based company is a manufacturer of tire changing tools and equipment.

Inc. annually ranks private businesses to determine their Inc. 500 and Inc. 5000 lists of fastest-growing businesses. AME International ranked number 637, with 503% growth over the previous three-year period.

“It’s something that our employees have to be proud of,” says Keith Jarman, president of AME. “Our business grew a significant amount during a period when many businesses found it difficult to maintain previous revenue. We’re a young company, so we experienced rapid growth the first two years, despite the economy. We expected growth to taper off, but it never occurred.”
