RICHMOND, VA --- August 30, 2010 --- Zooom Printing, LLC a provider of high quality commercial offset printing, today announced that the company was named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list, a compendium of the most entrepreneurial and fastest growing private companies in America.
This is Zooom Printing’s first appearance on the Inc. 5000 list. The company’s President Jo Ann Rossi commented on the award: “As a start up company who has worked hard to differentiate itself in the extremely competitive commercial printing industry, we couldn’t be happier with our ranking. As avid readers of Inc. Magazine, we have watched the list for years, and to finally be a part of it is just a bit surreal.” Zooom Printing placed at #4309 on the list, with an impressive three year growth rate of 23%.
As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Zooom Printing shares a prestigious pedigree with such notable alumni as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Visa, Clif Bar, Patagonia, Oracle, and scores of other powerhouses. As Jane Berenston Editor of Inc. Magazine stated, “This year’s list is a testament to the creativity, resilience, and tenacity of America’s top entrepreneurs.” In addition, the Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy.
When asked what makes her company tick, Jo Ann simply stated, “Tenacity” she continued, “Whoever said that becoming an entrepreneur and working for yourself was easy must have never actually tried it.” Jo Ann, who works along side her husband and V.P. of Operations, Ben Rossi, knows the meaning of hard work. “This small family business could not have gotten where it is today without the loyal support of our clients and the devotion of our staff.” It’s true, Zooom Printing could be called the epitome of a family business. Ben and Jo Ann have two preschool aged children who are frequently running around the office, along with the family dog Phil who rarely misses a day at work. Jo Ann observes, “This is a tough industry, and we are making it in tough times. That alone says a lot for a company as small as ours.”
