Inc. magazine recently ranked Tempe-based Safety Services Company as one of the fastest growing private-owned companies in the nation for the fourth consecutive year.

With a growth rate of 124 percent, the company ranked as the 2,044th fastest growing in the nation and one of the 30 fastest growing businesses in Arizona.

In 2008, 2009 and 2010 the company respectively ranked 2.112, 1,313 and 1,316 overall and was consistently among the top 20 in Arizona.

Safety Services, provider of safety compliance and training materials, was founded in Yuma, Ariz., in 2005 by safety consultant Devon Dickinson. The first year of existence the company's 10 employees sold "Do-It-Yourself" weekly safety meetings to the construction industry.

Despite the crashing housing market and closure of many construction companies Dickinson's company was able to make $400,000 in year one.

Since then company's annual revenue has grown to more than $12.5 million. The growth facilitated the opening of a new corporate headquarters in Tempe, employing more than 150 people.

The company is still looking to hire more than 50 people at the Tempe location and is exploring a further expansion, facilitating the need for an additional 150 employees.
