NEW YORK, N.Y. and AUSTIN, Texas — Inc. recognized Bantam Electronics, Inc., a leading provider of high mix electronics manufacturing services for emerging companies, on its inaugural Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list, catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.

“The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy – the entrepreneurial part,” said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries like Manufacturing and Construction that are underreported in the business media.”

Bantam Electronics Bantam Electronics, a provider of high mix custom manufacturing and end-to-end supply chain management solutions to small- and mid-sized technology companies, focuses on building its business by helping its customers build their businesses.

The company recently completed an expansion project that doubled its manufacturing capacity to thirty thousand (30,000) square feet and has plans for further expansion within the next year. “We’re also proud to be at the top in growth among high mix electronics manufacturing services providers.” The company’s ability to provide high quality, rapidly implemented solutions to customers with smaller product volumes, which often have multiple, complicated configurations, has helped it to quickly establish itself as an emerging leader. “Putting our customers’ success at the forefront of everything we undertake has been the primary driver of our own success,” Chaddock said.
