Stuart C. Irby, Co., a Jackson, Miss.-based subsidiary of Sonepar USA, was named “One of the Fastest Growing Companies in Mississippi” by the Mississippi Business Journal. Having doubled in size since 2004, Irby continues to expand through new store development and acquisition. Irby is now the fifth-largest company in Mississippi, and expects this year's revenue to exceed $700 million. Irby was also named one of the “Best Companies to Work for in Mississippi” by the Mississippi Business Journal in 2006.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment for an 81-year-old company,” says President Michael C. Wigton. “Receiving this honor is reflective of what happens when we have dedicated employees working together for the good of Irby.”
