Ehman Inc., one of the country's oldest Macintosh peripheral companies, is the 39th-fastest-growing privately held company in the U.S., according to Inc. Magazine.

Each year, Inc. selects the nation's 500 fastest-growing privately held companies. More than 20,000 candidates are submitted with only 2,500 nominated for the final selection process.The criteria include the percentage sales increase over a five-year period, and during that time Ehman had 5,115 percent in sales growth.

"To be among the top 40 fastest-growing companies in America is a double triumph for us. Not only are we recognized for our fast growth, but we're also the highest-ranking manufacturer dedicated to the Macintosh market," said Mike Ehman, president and chief executive officer.

Ehman is a supplier of quality, low-cost Macintosh peripherals, including internal and external hard disk drives, 45MB removable disk drives and full and dual page monochrome monitors.
