A Princeton-based medical supplier claimed the state’s highest spot in the latest Inc. 5000 ranking of the country's fastest-growing companies. The annual ranking was released Tuesday.

Onsite Occupational Health & Safety Inc., ranked No. 101, was one of six Indiana businesses to make the top 500 and one of 65 in the top 5,000.

The Inc. 5000 ranks companies by percentage of revenue growth during the previous three years.

Founded in 2008, Onsite OHS recorded about $19 million in revenue in 2011 and grew 3,007 percent over three years. Employment at the company grew from four to 165.

Indiana’s top company on last year’s list, Slingshot SEO Inc., fell to No. 136 from No. 58 a year ago.

The Indianapolis-based Internet marketing consultant, which had $10.9 million in revenue last year, grew 2,391 percent over the past three years, according to Inc. 5000.

Slingshot increased employment from 10 to 100 people between 2008 and 2011. But the company announced earlier this month it would lay off about 15 people.

The only other Indianapolis company in the top 500 was Stonegate Mortgage, at No. 478.

The mortgage lender’s revenue increased 807 percent, to $23.7 million, and employment grew from 40 to 215.

Other Indiana companies in the top 500:

— No. 176 Day Online Solutions LLC of Sellersburg grew revenue 1,949 percent, to $2.7 million;

— No. 202 Livin’ Lite Recreational Vehicles of Wakarusa grew 1,793 percent, to $8.9 million;

— No. 326 StrataShops of Elkhart grew 1,155 percent, to $3.5 million.

Livin’ Lite was the only other Indiana company besides Slingshot to return to the top 500.

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  2. to be the big fish in the little pond of IRL midwest racin' when yer up against Racin' Gardner

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
