Here are the 2019 Fast 50 finalists

May 20, 2019

In business, growth is the name of the game, and these companies are ahead of the pack. Here’s a list of the Chicago area’s 50 fastest-growing businesses, produced with accounting firm Plante Moran.

We only considered companies located inside the seven-county area of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake (Ill.), Lake (Ind.), McHenry and Will as of Dec. 31, and ones that have been in business on or before Dec. 31, 2013. Certain companies and industries were not considered for this list, including real estate investment trusts, regulated banks, real estate developers, utilities, holding companies, subsidiaries/divisions, franchises and nonprofit organizations. Small companies (i.e., reporting less than $15 million in 2018 revenue) were likewise not considered.

Want to know who grew the fastest? Look for the ranked list of the Crain’s Fast 50 online June 21 and in the June 24 print issue. We’ll also include brief profiles of each company and longer profiles of the top 10 fastest-growing companies.
