Artisan Design Group Celebrates Ranking in The Dallas Business Journal’s Middle Market 50 and Inc.’s 5000 List of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies   

DALLAS, TX Artisan Design Group (“ADG”) is proud to announce that the company has ranked #4 in The Dallas Business Journal’s Middle Market 50 and ranked #1140 on Inc.’s 5000 List. ADG can attribute these two awards largely to its astounding three-year average growth of 426%. 

 “The acknowledgment ADG has received from Inc. and Dallas Business Journal is a true testament to the amazing team we have built at ADG and the dedication we have to our customers.” said Larry Barr, CEO, and Wayne Joseph, Vice Chairman, of Artisan Design Group.  

“ADG has seen tremendous growth over the past few years, and it is an honor to have our achievements recognized on these two prestigious lists,” added Doug Davis, President of Artisan Design Group. 

The Middle Market 50 List is an annual ranking of the fastest-growing middle market companies in North Texas and the second award ADG has received this year. Inc.’s 5000 List is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. 

ADG is a provider of design, procurement, and installation services for flooring, cabinets and countertops, serving homebuilders, multi-family developers and institutional property owners. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, ADG operates more than 135 distribution, design and service facilities and coordinates installation through over 2,500 personnel across 25 states. ADG was formed in 2016 through the combination of Floors Inc. and Malibu Floors. ADG has completed twelve acquisitions over the past two years under Sterling’s ownership. The company has completed twenty total acquisitions since its founding in 2016. ADG continues to seek local and regional market leaders to add to its family of flooring, cabinets and countertops specialists. 

About The Dallas Business Journal’s Middle Market 50 List  

The Dallas Business Journal’s seventh annual Middle Market 50 list honors the fastest-growing private and public companies based in Dallas-Fort Worth with annual revenue between $10 million and $1 billion that are nominated. The annual research project ranks the companies on a formula that includes a revenue growth percentage over a three-year period from 2018 to 2020 and other factors. The 50 companies were honored and the rankings revealed at an in-person event on Sept. 16 in Dallas.

About the Inc. 5000 List  

Companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 to 2020. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2017. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2020. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2017 is $100,000; the minimum for 2020 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to three decimal places. There was one tie on this year’s Inc. 5000. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
