NEW YORK, August 30, 2022 –Inc. Magazine today announced that Onepak has been recognized again this year on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is Onepak’s third consecutive year on the list. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Our selection as an Inc. 5000 company again this year is further validation of our technology platform as a vital driver of the circular economy,” said Steve Andon, founder and CEO, Onepak. “Without an automated, open and collaborative return logistics solution, companies will struggle to meet their sustainability objectives. Onepak is proud to provide that critical link to a closed loop supply chain.”
In addition to the Inc. 5000, Onepak has recently garnered several industry accolades, including the G75 Top Supply Chain Partners award. The company looks forward to significantly accelerating its growth globally in 2023 and beyond.
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have demonstrated unprecedented resilience during the global pandemic. While many companies suffered a significant downturn or went out of business completely, these companies continued to grow amid the supply chain woes, labor shortages, soaring fuel costs, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Together, these innovative and durable companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

Inc. 5000 Methodology
Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2021. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2021 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places. The top 500 companies on the Inc. 5000 are featured in Inc. magazine’s September issue. The entire Inc. 5000 can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
