NORWALK, Conn. – For the second year in a row, Teddy’s Transportation System, Inc., a global ground transportation company based in Norwalk, Conn., has been named to the Inc. magazine list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the country. According to Inc. magazine, the list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.
Teddy’s was also one of several companies selected for a slide show presentation featuring remarkable “green” initiatives, which will be screened at the Inc. 500 | Inc. 5000 Conference Sept. 18-20 in Washington, D.C. The company is ranked 83 on the list of the top 100 transportation companies.
“We were very excited to make the list in its inaugural year and are honored to repeat our success again this year,” noted Charles Wisniewski, president and CEO. “Teddy’s revenue grew 58.1% between 2004 and 2007, the timeframe of the current list, and I’m delighted to report that our success is continuing in 2008. Although many companies in our industry are having problems right now, Teddy’s has been experiencing solid growth, and we’re continuing to hire people to meet customer demand,” Wisniewski observed.
“Some business travel purchasing agents view ground transportation as a commodity, but customers demand prompt, courteous service, and will penalize any company that does not deliver that. Road warriors know there is often a vast difference in service levels across livery providers,” noted Wisniewski, a past president of the National Limousine Association.
“At Teddy’s, we also connect people through dynamic new avenues of communication, including online booking, as well as telephone reservations, technology that pinpoints a traveler’s whereabouts in real time, and innovative solutions that help corporate purchasers manage a worldwide transportation budget,” he said.
