ComRent Named to Inc. 500|5000 for Load Bank Solutions Business

Company Joins Prestigious Group for Seventh Consecutive Year

UPPER MARLBORO, MD--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2013) - Since its foundation in 1997, ComRent International has been widely recognized for customer focused solutions and thought leadership in the load bank industry. Today, ComRent announced the company has been named to the prestigious Inc. 500|5000 for the seventh consecutive year.

Recently, consecutive years of double digit growth have been beyond most company's expectations. But to ComRent President and CEO Raul Martinez, the continued growth comes as no surprise.

"ComRent is built on providing solutions for a changing market. We challenge our team of industry veterans to stay close to our customers, form partnerships and develop solutions to the toughest industry challenges. We work with our customers and industry leaders to make sure we know what they will face three to five years from now," Martinez said.

Following this strategy has led to the development of the only portable fleet of medium voltage load banks designed for utility applications and large turbine commissioning, rack-mounted 11.5 kW server simulators and water-cooled load banks for the data center industry, and LEED validation solutions for commercial construction. Other specialized solutions from ComRent cater to the Oil & Gas, Healthcare, and Maritime industries.

"Companies realize that testing and validating power systems with load banks saves time while dramatically helping to reduce the risk of failure," Martinez added. "ComRent is very proud of our growth and even more proud of our role in the power industry. We provide a valuable service and have developed the specialized equipment and experience to be the industry's leader. It is great validation to be recognized once again on the Inc. 5000 list."

The 2013 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2012.
