For the fourth consecutive year, ZAK Products, a Berkshire Hathaway company, has been named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list as one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
ZAK Products has had three-year sales growth of 58 percent.
Founded in 2002, and headquartered in Dallas, ZAK Products is a provider of professional grade automotive fluid and maintenance products to certified professional automotive service centers and franchised car dealerships across the United States.
The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Pandora and Zillow first gained their national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000, and ZAK joins other prominent brands featured in this year’s rankings.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the top-performing businesses for the fourth consecutive time on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list,” said Vic Keller, founder of ZAK Products. “I am beyond proud of the dedication and relentless determination of our employees, which has been a driving factor for the continued growth and success of ZAK. Since the company began, it has been our goal to foster innovative tactics that change the way our industry does business. We continue to find creative and streamlined ways to improve our products and processes while building the trust and confidence of our partners. I believe the Inc. 5000 recognition is a reflection of that culture, and I am excited for our team to continue to propel ZAK’s growth into the future.”
Zak Products credits much of its success to its close relationship with NASCAR. The company’s official partner status began in 2010 with the designation of ZAK as the #1 Professional Maintenance Fluid of NASCAR.
