SALEM — RocketDrop, a wholesale distributor of consumer electronics, including iPhones, scored the highest ranking of any New Hampshire private company in five years in an annual list of fastest-growing, private companies in the United States.
The company, ranked 161st in the country, recorded $72.6 million in revenue in 2013, a 2,519 percent increase over 2010’s figure of $2.8 million, according to Inc. Magazine.
New Hampshire companies scored 22 slots on the magazine’s top 5,000 fastest-growing, private firms, including six from Salem and four from Portsmouth.
RocketDrop scored the highest among New Hampshire companies since 2009, when GourmetGiftBaskets.com in Kingston weighed in at Number 37. That year, 32 Granite State companies made the top 5,000 list.
GourmetGiftBaskets.com made the list for the sixth straight year in 2014, capturing the top New Hampshire spot in 2009 and 2010.
RocketDrop, which couldn’t be reached for comment Monday, listed 15 employees in 2013, or a dozen more than in 2010, when it was founded.
The magazine said the company was “a wholesale distributor of consumer electronics, including iPhones, tablets and laptops, and Xbox.”
Ninth on the New Hampshire list was LEGACY Supply Chain Services, a Portsmouth company running 50 warehouse locations in 19 states and three Canadian provinces. The company, founded in 1975, reported $343.3 million in revenues in 2013, compared to $140 million in 2010. The company had 2,700 employees in 2013, more than doubling its workforce of 1,300 in 2010.
Topping the U.S. list this year was Fuhu, of El Segundo, Calif., which banked revenues of $195.6 million in 2013 compared to $123,000 in 2010.
The 227-employee company created “an Android tablet for kids and an Adobe Air application that allows children to access the Internet in a parent-controlled environment,” the magazine said.
The 2013 Inc. list featured 24 New Hampshire companies in the top 5,000 with Waveguide of Nashua ranked the highest at 1,066 overall.
Thirty one Granite State companies made the list in 2012, 26 in 2011 and 33 in 2010.
