EUGENE, Ore. – For the third consecutive year, Gorilla Capital, one of Oregon’s largest purchasers of distressed real estate, has been ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the 1,000 fastest growing companies in America. The Eugene-based company is ranked at No. 902, which places them as the 20th fastest growing real estate company in America and 7th overall for Oregon headquartered companies.

“Gorilla Capital has grown by continuing to challenge the status quo. Over the last 3 years, through constant innovation and improvement, we have not only gotten larger, we have gotten better at delivering tremendous value to the home buyer,” said Gorilla Capital CEO, John Helmick. “The employees of Gorilla Capital have an incredibly strong work ethic and this ranking is a direct result of the combined effort and dedication by each of our 43 employees.”

Other local Oregon companies that made the list include Elemental Technologies (No. 52), Consumer Cellular (No. 1,586), and Café Yumm! (No. 2,547).

Last year, Oregon Business magazine named Gorilla Capital on their 150 Top Privately Held Companies in Oregon, ranking in at No. 127.

Operating in multiple states and 19 Oregon counties, Gorilla Capital has quickly become a vital part of the fabric of the Oregon business community, thanks to an innovative business model and a staff of employees who share a strong work ethic. The company plans to continue its growth and expects to reach more than $100 million in sales in 2013.
