Complete turnkey electric vehicle charging solutions provider recognized as an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Company in America with sights set on rapid expansion.
Schenectady, NY – Livingston Energy Group, a Lynkwell Company (Lynkwell), celebrates its second year on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The only electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions provider offering a complete in-house suite of turnkey design, manufacturing, software, and services all out of the US continues to see rapid growth and adds to its executive team in preparation of further expansion.
An esteemed recognition, the Inc. 5000 list represents domestic private companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Ranking 1232, Lynkwell outpaced the stated 219% median growth rate of the 2023 cohort with an impressive 478% increase. Contributing to this success were several key milestones, including growing employees by 315%, launching a new in-house manufacturing division, expanding its robust partner network, and securing several significant contracts.
“We are immensely proud to be included on the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row,” commented Schuyler Poukish, co-founder of Lynkwell. “Lynkwell’s financial growth is directly linked to the expansion of our solution platform. With the addition of our in-house manufacturing facility, Lynkwell expands on its position as the only company with a complete suite of EV solutions all provided out of the US.”
“The EV market is one of the most attractive industries of our generation with its combination of extraordinary growth potential and positive social impact,” shared Mark Bilali, managing director at Warren Equity Partners – strategic investors in Lynkwell. “Through its vertical integration, Lynkwell is uniquely positioned to capitalize on this growth and accelerate EV adoption. We are excited to be a part of its future.”
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” added Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000 – with the fast growth that it requires – is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
“The drive and talent of the Lynkwell team is second to none. This recognition reflects that,” shared Jason Zarillo, co-founder of Lynkwell. “We are expanding our executive suite to further amplify that drive, translating this momentum into continued innovation and expansion in this critical industry.”
