NEW YORK, August 16, 2022 – Today, Inc. revealed that Aretec, Inc. has ranked on their annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses.
