FUTURE ENERGY SOLUTIONS HONORED BY INC. MAGAZINE AS ONE OF AMERICA’S FASTEST-GROWING PRIVATE COMPANIES
Lighting Company Included in 2018 Inc. 5000 List
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – (August 15, 2018) –Fort Lauderdale-based Future Energy Solutions (“FES”) made the 2018 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, an elite group that previously has included such leading companies as Microsoft, Intuit, Oracle, Zappos and Under Armour.
FES placed #1252 on the list, which was released by the magazine today.
“We are truly honored by this accomplishment, which is a tribute to our dedicated team of employees,” said Daniel Gold, founder and chief executive officer of FES, which provides lighting as a service (LaaS) to commercial customers in America, Europe and Australia.
FES built its customer base with a compelling proposition to upgrade and maintain energy-efficient lighting, while cutting electricity consumption – all without imposing any up-front capital costs on customers.
A first-of-its-kind company, FES has generated extraordinary revenue growth due to widespread acceptance of its Gold Initiative Program, which is based on turnkey delivery of upgraded lighting.Through the Program, FES installs energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures and bulbs and shares the monthly energy savings from replacing inefficient and outdated lighting, including HID (high intensity discharge), HPS (high pressure sodium) and fluorescent lighting.
Once enrolled in the Gold Initiative Program, companies never have to replace a bulb again, because FES maintains everything it installs. In addition to savings, FES’s interior and exterior lighting installations transform the appearance of automotive dealerships, casual dining restaurants, hotels, shopping plazas, schools, warehouses and more.
Over the last four years, FES customer numbers have soared as the Company’s lighting solutions have gained a massive following among businesses who desire an energy efficient lighting upgrade but do not want to incur the capital cost of purchasing, installing and continuing to manage their system.
Gold has served as CEO of Future Energy Solutions USA since 2012, when he and his partners created the company’s award-winning Gold Initiative Program, leading FES from a start-up to an international provider of commercial lighting.
Inclusion in the Inc. 5000 is just the latest honor for award-winning FES. Earlier this year, the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce honored Future Energy Solutions as the “TOP Business of the Year” in the large business category (50 or more employees) as part of the chamber’s 2018 Top Entrepreneurial Awards program. Last year, FES received the Good to Great Award for establishing itself as an industry leader. Previous winners have included Burger King Corporation and Royal Caribbean Ltd. In 2016, the South Florida Business Journal recognized FES as the fastest-growing business in southeast Florida.
FES and other companies in the new Inc. 5000 list will be formally recognizedat the 37th Annual Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala in San Antonio on October 17-19, 2018, at the JW Marriott Resort & Spa.
