Mortuary Response Solutions Ranks No. 791 on the 2021 Inc. 5000

Belton, SC (June 30, 2021)Inc. magazine today revealed that Mortuary Response Solutions is  No. 791 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing  private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos,  

Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national  exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. 

CEO Michael Richardson stated that being listed on the Inc. 5000 list is not only an honor for the  Company but also for all the employees that worked tirelessly to achieve this goal. Although being  named 791 nationally, MRS ranked No. 11 out of 58 companies named to the national list from  South Carolina and No. 1 in South Carolina in the Health Sector.  

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but  this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges.  Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median  revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, these companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the  past three years. 

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can  be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at The top  500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands  on August 20. 

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,”  says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in  America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is  just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great  leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
