Tectrans named one of America’s fastest growing companies

Posted on September 21, 2011

Los Angeles-based Tectrans Inc. was recognized as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in America by Inc. Magazine in its annual “Inc.500/5000” list. Tectrans is the largest public transportation firm on the list.

“This recognition is a significant milestone for our company, but more importantly, it is a significant accomplishment for all of our employees,” President/CEO Michael Griffus said. “Without the safety-minded contributions of each and every one of our 1,300 employees and our independent contractors, our strategic growth and this national recognition would not be possible.

“We also must thank our growing list of satisfied clients and the passengers who make our growth possible,” he added. “Whether it is providing safe transport of fixed route passengers and commuters, travelers visiting an airport, or providing mobility for those who need it most, Tectrans is proud to provide best-in-class transportation services every day. This recognition is the icing on the cake.”
