CRDN named fastest-growing private company

August 14, 2009
BERKLEY, MI — The Certified Restoration Drycleaning Network (CRDN) has been named one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States for the third year in a row by Inc. magazine, according to a press release.
Founded in 2001, CRDN reported growth of 72.1 percent, which has resulted from ongoing education of the insurance industry about the cost-effectiveness of restoring damaged textiles instead of replacing them, the release stated.
CRDN, which covers 94 percent of the United States, specializes in restoring garments and other fabric items damaged by smoke, fire, water, mold or other contaminants, the release noted.
Chip Bifano, CRDN’s president, said: "We are extremely pleased to be acknowledged by Inc. magazine for the third straight year. This recognition validates the continued efforts of our team at every level — from the corporate office to each local CRDN business — to understand the needs of the insurance industry and provide a valuable solution. Our focus on education and highly professional service has enabled us to make a positive impact on the lives of those we serve, namely insurance adjusters, restoration contractors and their customers. It is also very rewarding to be a part of noteworthy growth for each of our members coast-to-coast and to support their efforts to build sustainable, meaningful businesses."
