WAVE Equity Partners’ Portfolio Company and Cold Chain Innovator, AeroSafe Global, Acknowledged for Surge of Innovation and Growth
AeroSafe Global News, Aug. 15, 2023 via PRNewswire — AeroSafe Global, the leading provider of cold chain services for the safe and sustainable delivery of biopharmaceuticals, proudly announced today its ranking of No. 1,238 on the 2023 Inc. 5000 list. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Household name brands such as Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many others gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“AeroSafe’s inclusion in the 2023 Inc. 5000 ranking marks a significant milestone in our relentless pursuit of innovation and customer satisfaction,” said AeroSafe’s CEO, Jay McHarg. “This honor is a testament to our team’s unwavering commitment to our customers and the patient and providers they serve, with the continued growth of our customer base as a proof point of success.
Building on its success and prominence in the industry, AeroSafe’s inclusion in the 2023 Inc. 5000 ranking comes on the heels of earning the top spot in Rochester’s Top 100 list of fastest-growing, privately owned companies for 2022.
As AeroSafe continues to grow, so does its positive impact on the healthcare industry. More than 45 biopharma companies trust AeroSafe to help them deliver millions of shipments to hundreds of thousands of patients, providers, pharmacies, and hospital systems in 85 countries.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges.
