Forty Central Ohio companies have made Inc. magazine’s list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in the country.

One company, e-Cycle, even placed in the magazine’s top 500. The firm experienced 959 percent business growth between 2008 and 2011, and created nearly 100 jobs at its Hilliard headquarters and throughout the United States.

“We are extremely appreciative of the recognition we’ve received from Inc., as it demonstrates we are continuing on the right track in delivering value to organizations that are searching for innovative mobile recycling solutions,” said e-Cycle CEO Christopher Irion in a statement. “What makes us even more proud is the fact that our growth has been achieved during a challenging economic period.”

e-Cycle came in at No. 393, up 194 places from its ranking one year ago.
