NEW YORK, August 20, 2008 – Inc. today ranked Aegis Analytical Corp. number 3310 on its annual ranking of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the country. The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.

“Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism,” said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth.”
Aegis Analytical is a leading provider of Manufacturing Process Intelligence software that helps process manufacturers access, aggregate and analyze data on-demand from raw materials to final product. Aegis helps some of the world’s leading companies such as Baxter, Biogen Idec, Genzyme and Merck Serono accelerate products to market, increase supply chain efficiencies, reduce the cost of quality and achieve process predictability.
“Increased regulatory and competitive pressures facing the life sciences manufacturing industry over the last few years have given Aegis the opportunity to implement its Discoverant software solution on a global level,” said Robert Di Scipio, Aegis president and chief executive officer. “We are honored to have been named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list and know that our growth was made possible by dedicated employees, loyal customers and expert channel partners.”
The 5000 companies that made the list reported aggregate revenue of $185 billion and median three-year growth of 147 percent. Most important, the 2008 Inc. 5000 companies were engines of job growth, having created more than 826,033 jobs since those companies were founded.
