“Our inclusion on the Inc. 5000 is testament to our team’s commitment to our mission and the values that drive our success,” says Founder and CEO Vigdis Eriksen. “Our growth is thanks not only to the hard work and dedication of everyone at Eriksen, but also to the many clients who trust our company with their language needs year after year. We’re excited to continue this upward trajectory through 2023 and beyond.”
Eriksen recorded a growth rate of 121% over the past three years, achieving the company’s goal of continued momentum and responsible, sustainable growth. Recent accolades include recognition from independent market research firm CSA Research, which named Eriksen one of the top 100 LSPs in the world and top 30 LSPs in North America.
“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.”
