The entrepreneurial dream is alive in the San Fernando Valley region, judging from the performance by businesses on this year’s Fastest Growing Private Companies list.

The Business Journal’s annual roster starts at the top with Packform USA, a company that has grown an incredible 5,060 percent in the last three years, despite – or even because of – a pandemic. But even the last company on the list has grown nearly 34 percent – a notable accomplishment considering the economic headwinds. 

At a reception on Oct. 28, Business Journal Editor and Publisher Charles Crumpley unveiled the companies and their rankings. In addition to a countdown of the 30 names on the list, the event revealed two special awards. The Star Performer is the company on the list the longest – which this year went to No. 2 Sada Inc., which has appeared for 11 consecutive years. Also, the Largest Company recognition went to Harbor Freight Tools USA, which raked up revenues of $6.5 billion last year. Profiles of these companies and the top 10 on the list appear on the following pages.
