Ponds & Sons Construction Places #407 on the Inc. 500 list of Fastest Growing Companies in U. S.

Lodge, SC – Willis Ponds, Vice President of Ponds and Sons Construction Company, Inc. announced today that Ponds & Sons is in position 407 of the fastest growing companies in the United States. Founded in December of 2003, Ponds & Sons has grown by 760% over the past three years.

Inc. Magazine compiles a list of the fastest growing companies in the United States each year. The companies are ranked by percentage of growth over the past three years. This year only seven companies in the entire state of South Carolina are on the Inc 500 list. Forty South Carolina companies were in the top 5000 fastest growing companies.

Inc. Magazine also ranked Ponds & Sons as #18 in the list of the fastest growing construction companies in the United States.

Willis Ponds, 27 years old and General Manager, explained the company’s success by following four key ideas: give the customers exactly what they want, exceed the customers’ expectations, get the job done right no matter what it takes and always do the right thing. Through very hard work and dedication, Willis has led Ponds & Sons to the Inc 500. The fact Ponds & Sons earned a position in the Inc 500 is even more remarkable given the state of the housing market.

When asked if earning a position on the Inc. 500 was worth it, Willis answered, "We work diligently to satisfy our customers. Qualifying for the Inc. 500 was just a byproduct of that effort. Of course being on the Inc. 500 is an incredible honor, but our real goal is to have very happy customers."

Ponds and Sons builds custom homes in the South Carolina Lowcountry for discriminating customers throughout the United States. Living in Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey and North Carolina and building a home in South Carolina can be a challenge. To help owners stay on top of progress, the company has developed a comprehensive web site with progress photos. A customer can simply visit and see actual photos of their home on a daily basis.

Ponds & Sons watches the construction of each house very carefully to insure that each one is built to exceed the customer’s expectations, all building codes and Ponds’ high standards. Ponds & Sons is ever mindful of the efficiency, cost of ownership and longevity of their homes as well as the fit and finish. For this reason customers can expect to receive a home that costs little to operate, is easy to maintain and can be handed down for generations to come.

Ponds & Sons is a privately owned company. Please direct questions to Willis Ponds (cell (843) 599 - 9056, office (843) 846 - 2500, or email).
