Massachusetts Based Kurgo® Named One of the Fastest Growing Companies in America
For 6th year in a row, Kurgo® recognized by Inc Magazine as one of America’s fastest growing private companies in 34th annual Inc. 500 | 5000 list
(Salisbury, MA) August 17, 2015 - Kurgo®, the pet adventure experts, announced today that the company has been named to Inc. Magazine’s 2015 Inc 5000 as one of the fastest growing companies in America, the sixth year in a row they’ve received the accolade. Notably, Kurgo was also one of only two Massachusetts companies named in the consumer product category, and was also featured in the magazine’s 27 “Coolest Products” section.
“We consider inclusion on this list to be a benchmark of success for us as a company,” said Kurgo President Gordie Spater. “We owe it to our incredibly hard-working team, and their continued commitment to our mission of helping dogs and their families enjoy the outdoors together.”
Kurgo was founded by brothers Kitter and Gordie Spater after the development of a barrier for the car to help contain their 70-pound hyperactive Plott Hound mix while traveling. The company has since grown from their original product offering of the Backseat Barrier to an extensive and diverse line of travel and outdoor products that encourage pets and people to live the companies motto, ”Go Together.” Kurgo currently has 21 employees and a breadth of pet products for outside the home from harnesses and booster seats, to life vests and hiking packs.
Through the Kurgo Foundation, Kurgo has made giving back an important part of their business as well with numerous donations to a variety of nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving the lives of our pets.
