Bamboo Pipeline Ranked the 25th Fastest Growing Environmental Service Company By Inc. Magazine
Bamboo Pipeline was ranked the 25th fastest growing privately-held Environmental Services ("Green") Company according to Inc. Magazine as published this September in the companion survey for the Inc. 500 -- the 500 fastest growing privately-held companies in the U.S. The companion results were published on Inc.com, an online business resource that annually compiles a list of the top 5000 fastest growing companies in America. It also ranks the fastest growing companies by category. According to Inc.com, from 2005-2007, Bamboo Pipeline experienced 163.4% growth. Responsible for this growth is the unique method Bamboo Pipeline uses to sell and distribute horticultural products to contractors via Internet, fax and phone. Bamboo Pipeline runs a streamlined horticultural wholesale distribution system allowing them to deliver large amounts of high-quality plants and trees to contractors within days, if not hours, of order placements. According to Matt Fay, President of Bamboo Pipeline, currently the company is also the largest seller of plants in the U.S. using a web-based ordering system.
Bamboo Pipeline serves the western U.S. from facilities in Camarillo (for Southern California) and Sunol (for Northern California). They utilize SAP enterprise technology and proprietary software applications designed to work with SAP. Matt Fay and Mike Cornell, started the company in 2000 when they noticed there were tremendous challenges getting high quality plant material delivered directly to job sites. By combining new Internet technologies with SAP enterprise software and outstanding customer service, Bamboo Pipeline is able to differentiate themselves from their competitors and deliver the best available plants, trees and shrubs in the Western U.S. to landscape professionals.Bamboo Pipeline's website allows contractors to research and select the market's highest quality plants and landscaping materials. The SAP-enabled system tracks more than 10,000 plants and trees daily; it provides buyers real-time data that can be sorted by cost, quality and past performance of vendors, resulting in the most complete resource for "green goods" in America.
