September 10, 2007

Inc. ranked Solutions-II, Inc. on its first-ever Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine's annual Inc. 500 list, catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.

"The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy - the entrepreneurial part," said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries like Manufacturing and Construction that are underreported in the business media.

Solutions-II, Inc. is a Premiere IBM Business Partner founded in 1992 and specializes in virtualization, optimization, protection and security of IT environments. Solutions-II, Inc. has proven their excellence and has been the recipient of several prestigious awards including, but not limited to the Global IBM Beacon Award and IBM Services Leadership Awards.

"Being included in the debut edition of the Inc. 5000 is quite a distinguished honor for us at Solutions-II, Inc.," said Solutions-II, Inc. President & CEO Todd Bowling. "We continually strive for innovation and excellence in our solutions as well as in our employees. This allows us to achieve the exceptional growth rates Solutions-II strives for while consistently providing world class service and support to our customers."
