Freedom Energy Logistics has been named amongst the Inc 5000 2017’s fastest growing companies in America!
Auburn, NH: This year’s list selections grew 6 fold on average since 2013, a pace that eclipses the economy growth of only 6.7% during that period.
Past honorees that have gone on to be household names include, Zappos, Timberland, Under Armor, Microsoft, Go Pro and plenty more.
“We are extremely grateful to the customers and employees that have made this honor possible. In 2011 Freedom was the smallest of our 4 businesses, it’s amazing to see how far the company has come. This is truly a team effort and everyone at Freedom is proud of the role they have played and continue to play in our success. This is the third time our president, Gus Fromuth, has made the INC 5000 and the second company he has reached this milestone with, a true testament to his leadership and vision.” – Bart Fromuth, COO
