Valencia, CA (December 18, 2012) – Valencia, CA based AMS Fulfillment has been featured in the inaugural ranking of Inc.’s Hire Power Awards, recognizing job creation, and the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.
AMS Fulfillment generated 227 jobs from 2008 to 2011, placing it at #6 among the 10 private business job creators within the Logistics and Transportation Industry honored with Inc.’s Higher Power Awards. Additionally, AMS ranked # 1051 on the 2012 Inc. 5000 list.
AMS CEO Ken Wiseman said, “AMS Fulfillment has enjoyed an over 300% growth over the past three years, and we continue to grow. At the end of 2011 we had 297 employees, and today we employ more than 500, which includes our temp labor force. There is great satisfaction in making our success into success for our community. We have sought to balance personnel requirements with the inclusion of individuals that are facing challenges in the workforce. At AMS, these targeted groups include at risk youth, developmentally disabled adults, veterans, and others simply trying to get back on their feet.”
In addition to this prestigious award, AMS Fulfillment has received accolades from:
- State of California Enterprise Zone Business of the Year for employment of at-risk youth and those with barriers to employment

Inc. is the only major business media brand aimed solely at CEOs of fast-growing private companies. The Hire Power Awards will appear in Inc.’s December/January issue, as well as the brand’s web site, www.inc.com.
“The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 – an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession,” explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “And it isn’t just the big guys that are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50 million in annual revenue make up nearly one-third of the Hire Power list.”
The inaugural Inc. Hire Power Awards are sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which is proud to recognize American companies that have greatly increased their workforces. Inc.’s Hire Power Awards celebrates private companies on the forefront of American job creation, giving these businesses the recognition they deserve.
