APR Supply Company has once again been named to the Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies in Central Pennsylvania by the Central Penn Business Journal.
APR was notified of its ranking when Central Penn Business Journal released its list of the Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies alphabetically on July 31. Official ranks will be revealed at the awards event on October 23, 2015 at the Hilton Harrisburg.
In 2014, APR was officially ranked thirty-fifth on the list.
This year’s award makes the ninth out of the last 10 years that APR has been named as a Top 50 Fastest Growing Company.
APR continued its upward growth in 2014, growing revenue about 13 percent up to more than $100 million, making the company one of Lebanon County’s biggest businesses.
APR’s President and CEO, Scott Weaver, said Lebanon County’s location, a central point for many of its 33 locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, is a key reason why the company stays in Lebanon.
“We like to joke that we’re centrally isolated,” Weaver said. “Think of how easy it is for us to get the Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Lancaster, York...you have a ton of metropolitan areas within our reach. And this is our home. It’s a great place to be from.”
APR has also been ranked 29th in the CPBJ’s 2015 Top 100 Private Company list, up from the 31st spot in 2014.
