SHARON, Mass., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ — has been added to this year’s Inc. 500 – the premier list of America’s fastest-growing privately owned companies.

CEO Norm Schneider says he is “thrilled to be part of this elite group. I think it’s a testament to the level of trust we have with our customers, who come back to do business with us again and again.” Cash For Gold USA’s parent company, CJ Environmental (whose name appears on the prestigious Inc. 500 list) has recently launched and Schneider says all three sites now offer higher payouts than their competitors, as well as no-risk guarantees. Schneider explains, “If a customer is unhappy with our payout for any reason, we’ll return their material to them at our cost. But we find that people are pretty happy doing business with us.”

Since 2006, CJ Environmental has increased its revenue by 1,394.5% – well above the average of the Consumer Products & Services companies that made the “fastest growing” list. In total, Consumer Products & Services companies earned over $44 billion during 2008.

One of the ways that CJ Environmental has grown so rapidly in a recession environment is its reputation for customer satisfaction. Their cash-for-gold program offers free, insured shipping as well as a guarantee to beat any of their competitors’ prices by 10%. Mr. Schneider says he’s excited to offer that same level of service to customers who have “been searching everywhere for fair prices for their gold, silver, and diamond jewelry.” Their new site ( openly shares inside information on the various cuts of diamonds and how they are assayed to determine value using the well-established 4-Cs – Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat (size) as the guideline for establishing market value. Schneider explains, “One of the reasons our company (Cash for Gold USA) is so successful is our straightforwardness with our customers. We aim to educate our customers so they can make informed decisions about selling their Gold, Silver and Diamond jewelry to maximize their returns.”

Their other website ( allows sellers to quickly cash in on their unwanted silver in a reliable, secure manner. Cash for Silver USA will purchase sterling silver flatware, serving pieces and jewelry for superior payouts.

About the future, Mr. Schneider says, “I hope that we will continue to grow, but more importantly, that we can help our customers get quick, fair payouts for their unwanted gold, silver and diamonds during these tough economic times.”

CJ Environmental is also responding to its success with an increase in philanthropy, donating one dollar for every sale made through one of their sites to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
