Willow Industries has been recognized as No. 1583 on its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, marking the company's third consecutive year on the prestigious list. The 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, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
"We are beyond honored to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list for the third year in a row," said Jill Ellsworth, founder and CEO of Willow Industries. "I am so proud of the passion our elite team gives towards the advancement of the industry and our collective dedication to both businesses and consumers through science and quality standards. As our industry experiences dynamic changes, Willow remains a strong ally to our partners, and we are as dedicated as ever to empowering the industry together."
In 2015, Ellsworth identified a need for health and safety standards in the cannabis industry and utilized her extensive science and consumer safety background to launch Willow Industries, the first cannabis decontamination kill-step company in the country. Today, WillowPure technology and Willow Scientific services are available to all licensed cultivators in the U.S. and across the globe.
"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 it requires - is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future."
