Design/Construction Company Has Grown 832% in Three Years

ORANGE, California – August 30 – Outside the Lines (OTL), a California-based design and themed construction company, has been named to the coveted 2011 Inc. 500 List of fastest-growing private U.S. companies.

Inc. magazine ranked OTL No. 411 on its 30th annual Inc. 500. Within the construction industry, OTL ranks 17th. This is the first year OTL has been included in the list. OTL experienced 832% in revenue growth over the past three years.

“We’re very honored to be recognized for achieving this growth,” says OTL CEO J. Wickham Zimmerman. “Because of this growth, we’re also able to create and maintain jobs, which is important to us and the economy.”

“Our growth can be attributed to a talented team that strives to provide exceptional service and quality on every project they’re involved in,” Zimmerman says. “Since our founding, we’ve never deviated from our vision of providing the finest rockwork, themed construction and specialty water feature projects in the world.”

Zimmerman also attributes the company’s success to its ability to be innovative, flexible and efficient. “In these times, we’ve implemented ways to control costs and developed additional ways to serve our clients better,” Zimmerman says.

OTL President Hugh F. Hughes says that “by creating supportive partnerships with our clients, we’ve been able to develop a better understanding of their needs and vision. Using this approach, we’ve succeeded at providing more value for each project, one contract at a time.”
Hughes stresses that one way OTL provides value to clients is through an education process that works both ways. He develops a holistic understanding of his clients’ needs and educates them on the rockwork and water feature process so they can make better decisions.
