TRInternational, Inc. Recognized on PSBJ 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies

SEATTLE - TRInternational, Inc. (TRI) a global chemical distributor headquartered in Seattle, WA is proud to announce it was ranked number 57 of the top 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Washington State by the Puget Sound Business Journal on October 15, 2009. TRI Owner/CEO, Anthony Ridnell, President, Jeff Wright, and Vice President, Rowland Morgan attended the invitation-only celebration banquet, which drew over 400 attendees, to receive the ranking and to honor all 100 companies that made the list. The 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies were featured in a special publication of the PSBJ on October 16, 2009.

"We are very proud to be named to the Top 100 list this year,” said Anthony Ridnell, CEO/Owner of TRInternational, Inc. “It's one thing to make the list once, but making it a second time (and four years apart) shows consistency and maturity in our organization that we are proud of. “

Jeff Wright, President of TRInternational says, “The "Top 100 Fastest-Growing Companies" list is largely composed of "human capital" firms (consulting, marketing, etc.), and recent start-ups with a phenomenal business model. At 15 years in business, selling commodity chemicals, TRI is neither. That is why I'm so proud of our entire organization for their consistent professionalism, but also creativity and foresight, in finding ways to continually "re-invent the wheel" of chemical distribution... making this kind of growth possible not just once, but twice. Well done, team!”
