This year's version of the NJBIZ Top 250 Privately Held Companies has a nice circular design theme on its cover, and that seems particularly appropriate for today's New Jersey business community, with its perpetual ebbs and flows in fortunes.

The companies we have profiled this year to go with the “Big List” have all seen the wheel of fortune turn throughout their history, and are undoubtedly pleased to be on a current upswing that has landed them in our Top 30. But each one’s circle of life has manifested itself in a distinctive way. One company has seen a second generation continue its founder’s legacy, another is on a growth path thanks to acquisitions and the third is staying busy replacing our nation’s aging infrastructure.

All parts of the circle of business life.

And there are plenty of other companies on our list that are traveling the path to success, no matter how circuitous it may seem at times.

In our own efforts to grow and adapt, we have continued the Top 250 we began in 2016, expanding on our Top 100 list of years past. And we have continued the popular breakouts that dig deeper into the Big List.

We think you’ll enjoy the 2017 edition. So take a look … ’round.

In addition, the links below are profiles of some standout members of the "Big List."

  • No. 5: Mott MacDonald — Engineering firm’s North American operation sees opportunity in nation’s aging infrastructure
  • No. 23: Torcon Inc.— Founder’s customer-first mindset still fuels growth at 50-year-old Red Bank construction firm
  • No. 26: Imperial Dade — Jersey City food service and janitorial supply business is eager to add on customers ... and other companies
