PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (September 19, 2013) — Direct Capital has been named one of the nation’s fastest growing companies on the Inc. 5000, joining a list that has included leading brands like Intuit, Oracle, Microsoft, Zappos and more.

Direct Capital, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, is a leading national provider of equipment financing, working capital and business loans for small businesses. The company was named the largest New Hampshire business on the Inc. 5000 based on revenue. Direct Capital’s three-year growth rate of 217 percent also ranked it among the fastest growing companies in the Boston metropolitan area.

“We have been in business for 20 years and we continue to achieve the type of growth that you generally only see from start-up companies,” said Stephen Lankler, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Direct Capital. “This type of recognition really validates our success in meeting the lending needs of main street businesses with speed, simplicity, affordability and, most importantly, an experience that is remarkable.”

The Inc. 5000, produced annually by Inc. Magazine, uses revenue and other growth metrics to calculate the 5000 companies nationwide showing the most rapid growth.
