New York, August 18, 2016 - Inc. magazine ranked C2 Solutions on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious 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 most dynamic segment- its independent small businesses.

"Our growth in revenue is only one of the measures that show we're building a world-class IT services company of focused experts that drive rapid technology improvements and business solutions for our clients.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc.

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." The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX.
