Inc. has announced that Maud Borup ranks among the top two-thirds of companies on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Patagonia, and many well-known brands gained national exposure on the Inc. 5000.
“Being ranked on the Inc. 5000 would not be possible without the hard work, dedication, and commitment from each of our team members. This is about them and what they bring to the company every day to achieve the growth and success we’ve experienced over the years,” comments Christine Lantinen, president of Maud Borup.
The Inc. 5000 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. This year, Inc. 5000 companies added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc 5000 — with the fast growth it requires – is truly an accomplishment. Maud Borup is a company building our future.”
“Maud Borup is on a growth trajectory to be a $100 million company in the next 4 – 5 years,” adds Lantinen. “In the past year, we’ve opened two new manufacturing facilities, hired almost 100 new team members, and purchased over $10 million of robotic automation to keep up with demand.”
