ROANOKE, Va. – Aug. 19, 2022 – Southern Trust Home Services, a leading electrical, HVAC and plumbing company serving southwest Virginia, has been named to the annual Inc. 5000 list, a prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is the first year Southern Trust has made the list, which  contains many of the most successful independent companies.  

“It is exciting to have earned this impressive honor, and we could not have done it without the support of our wonderful team of employees and the dedication of our loyal customers,” said Ted Puzio, owner of Southern Trust Home Services. “While the selection of Southern Trust to this list proves that we are one of the country’s
fastest-growing companies, our growth will not stop here. We are constantly working to recruit and hire the best technicians and provide unparalleled customer service so that our clients consider us their only home service choice.”

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000  have demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate reached 2,144 percent. Together, sources report, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”


Puzio said Southern Trust prides itself on offering its customers the best solutions and latest innovations in heating, cooling, plumbing and electric and also works to ensure that the staff receives the ongoing training they need to be leaders in the Roanoke area home services industry.

“Our incredible growth during the some of the most difficult times in recent memory is a testament to the dedication of our staff and the ongoing training we provide them to stay at the top of their game,” Puzio said. “I congratulate the team of Southern Trust Home Services for this achievement.”
