NEW YORK, September 20, 2012 -- Inc.magazine today ranked XS International NO 4337 on its sixth annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. 

Unified Payments tops this year’s list. XS International joins Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani,, KIND and famed hatmaker Tilly’s, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.

“Making the Inc. 5000 list for the 2nd year in a row is a testament to the demand for our Alternative 3rd Party Global Field Maintenance we provide on Cisco, Juniper, Brocade and F5 Networks equipment among others. We are proud we can add to new U.S. job creation since our contracts in the U.S. are serviced by U.S. technicians and not outsourced overseas like most of the call centers staffed by these manufacturers. So not only are we saving customers 20-30% on their annual maintenance, they are receiving faster service”, stated Todd Bone, Founder and Chairman of XS International.

XS International also services end-of-life and end-of-service IT equipment which manufacturers will no longer support. 

In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent. The companies on this year’s list report having created over 400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $299 billion.
