Eight Santa Clarita Valley-based companies have been named to Inc. Magazine’s 2019 Inc. 5000 list, which identifies private companies in the U.S. that have had the highest percentage of growth in annual revenue over a three-year period, from 2015 to 2018.

Adel Villalobos, CEO and founder of Lief Labs, attended the 2019 Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala in Phoenix last week, which featured more than 40 speakers and 20 sessions to provide attendees with business insights to continue increasing their growth.

“Lief Labs’ rise on the Inc. 5000 list is a testament to our firm’s exciting growth story as we continue to increase our year-over-year sales and provide innovative products and excellence in service and standards to the dietary supplements industry,” Villalobos said in a prepared statement Tuesday. “Lief’s success and momentum could not have been achieved without the hard work and commitment of Lief’s talented team of people and our highly valued client partners.”

From $14 million in revenue in 2016 to more than triple that in 2018, Lief Labs is projecting $54 million in annual sales for 2019, according to the release.

“We are so pleased that these enterprising companies call the Santa Clarita Valley home,” said Holly Schroeder, president and CEO of the SCV Economic Development Corp. “It’s a testament to the strength and creativity of our business community. We congratulate them on their success and we hope to see more SCV-based companies make the list next year.”
