Between 2018 and 2021 AEBetancourt (AEB) achieved three-hundred percent revenue growth. A level that earned us a ranking of #2011 among 5,000 of America’s fastest-growing private companies.

The annual Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. And no easy feat considering the conditions under which organizations had to weather the past three years. The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of COVID-19.

AEB ranked 2011th overall and 81st in the Human Resources Companies category. A little closer to home, we ranked 28th fastest growing private company in Michigan and ranked 8th in the Grand Rapids area.
