Copart is once again listed as a leader among small companies, making Forbes Top 200 Small Companies list for the ninth consecutive year.

The firm, with a facility in Fairfield, was No. 79 on the list - moving up the list from its 140th position last year.

To qualify for the list, companies must have sales between $5 million and $750 million and a stock price of $5 as of Sept. 29. The ranking is based on return on equity, sales growth and profit growth during the past 12 months.

"We are very proud of making Forbes ... list again," said Copart President Jay Adair.
