Vermont 100+ 25th Anniversary: GMCR is the new number one

Mon, 01/09/2012 - 4:29am -- tim

In January 1987, Vermont Business Magazine ran its first Vermont 100, predicated on 1986 revenues. Since then there have been only three companies that have been Number One: National Life Group, C&S Wholesale Grocers and Fletcher Allen Health Care. This year another will join that exclusive list and it comes as no surprise that it is Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc, which nearly doubled its revenues in just the last year. Indeed, over the course of 25 years, GMCR is the fastest growing company as well. VBM is also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
The full Vermont 100+, with growth charts and industry-specific subcategories, once again appears in the January issue of Vermont Business Magazine. To go along with the rankings, we have profiles of every company that has appeared on the list every year. We also have re-published the top 20 rankings from 25 years ago, as well as from 20,15,10 and 5 years ago. The reader will notice how traditional manufacturing and construction firms still play a vital role in the economy, even with the emergence of high-tech companies.
