New Ranking of 2,363 Fueled by 248% Growth over 2021
RALEIGH, N.C. (AUGUST 23, 2022) – Open Sky Group, global specialists in Blue Yonder solutions, once again ranks among the fastest-growing privately held companies in America in the Inc. 5000 listing. Their 2022 award marks the sixth time the supply chain software implementer has made the list, posting year-over-year revenue growth of 248% from 2021.
“We are grateful to be counted among such a prestigious group of companies once again,” said Open Sky Group CEO, Chad Kramlich. “Sustaining this level of growth consistently is never easy, but we have a very talented team and a great roster of cherished clients who make it possible and without whom we would not be where we are today. The credit goes to them.”
The list traditionally honors the entrepreneurial spirit of company founders who grow privately owned or independent businesses through hard work and dedication. Ranks are determined by revenue growth over a three-year period, focusing on small- to medium-sized businesses, each individually profiled. Microsoft, Patagonia, Under Armour, and other leading brands also gained their first national exposure as Inc. 5000 honorees.
Blue Yonder GM, North America Partner Success, Umar Ausaf, says, “It’s always exciting to see our partners get industry recognition for their accomplishments, in this case, for sustained growth. Open Sky Group has been and continues to be a very strong partner for us.”
Open Sky Group was founded in 2006 and specializes in warehouse, labor, and transportation management software implementations and upgrades, with over 1,000 successful projects to date. The company has expanded its consulting offerings in recent years, designed to help warehouse and transportation managers lower costs, increase throughput, and enhance revenues in the face of ongoing, global supply chain challenges, whether that is through process change or adding technology such as robotics or other automation.
Open Sky Group began 2022 by continuing their partnership with Australian PGA TOUR golfer, Cameron Smith, elevating their brand on the international stage behind Mr. Smith’s winning performance; he currently ranks second in the world. The company also received Blue Yonder’s Top Channel Partner Award for the fifth time and was named to SupplyChainBrain’s “100 Great Supply Chain Partners” for the tenth time in 2022, adding to their accolades going into the Inc. 5000 ranking.
“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.”
