Pittsburgh, PA - For the second year in a row SWAT Environmental has been named one of the top 5,000 fastest growing companies in the United States by Inc Magazine.

Inc Magazine has praised the business model as well as effective and non-invasive technology that SWAT Environmental has utilized and perfected over the last decade.
For Inc Magazine to take note of SWAT Environmental for two consecutive years is an honor and testament to the high quality customer service and radon gas solutions consistently provided by the Michigan company. SWAT Environmental installed 10,000 radon detection and remediation systems in 2011 alone according to Inc Magazine. The continued presence of SWAT Environmental on the Inc Magazine List of Fastest Growing U.S. Companies indicates that SWAT Environmental is still working on rapidly expanding their business. Radon mitigation services are important for the environment and health of people in the community, so expansion by SWAT Environmental can prove beneficial to more and more people.
