For the second consecutive year, ZAK Products Inc. has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual “Inc. 500/5000,” a ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
The Texas-based specialty automotive fluids manufacturer has experienced a growth rate of 76% over the past three years, increased its customer base by more than 15% in 2013, and increased annual revenue 20% year-over-year. NEXEMO, the firm’s automotive dealer/installer online procurement solution, led the way with a 70% growth rate.
ZAK Products joins other prominent brands featured in the 2014 rankings that provide a comprehensive look at America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“The Inc. 500|5000 list represents the strongest, most innovative companies in the United States, and we strive to attain that strength and innovation every day,” says Vic Keller, founder of ZAK Products. “This recognition is a reflection of the dedication of our employees as well as the trust our partners place in us. I think this combination of knowledgeable employees, trusted partners and innovative products will help continue our growth into the future.”
ZAK Products evolved from an automotive chemical company to a leading manufacturer of premium quality, professional grade chemicals for vehicle maintenance, as well as safety and accessory items. To help dealerships create long-term customer relationships, the company created Service Sales University, a training program where service advisors become trusted advisors to car owners, the company says. ZAK Products also is the No. 1 professional maintenance fluid of NASCAR.
“When we founded ZAK Products in 2002, our goal was to not only offer quality auto chemicals, but change the way our industry does business,” continues Keller. “Over the last 12 years, we have expanded our business from just two products to over 5,000, and created a service model unmatched in our industry. Our growth and customer satisfaction rate, along with our NASCAR recognition, are evidence that our vision of becoming more than just an automotive chemical company is coming to fruition.”
