Grand Prix International (GPI) has been named to the Inc. 2022 Best in Business list in the Small and Mighty category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society.
The list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 13), recognizes the most dynamic companies of all sizes and industries that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole.
Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, â€œInc. magazine is dedicated to showcasing America’s most dynamic businesses and the great things they do. The Best in Business awards shine a light on those that have gone above and beyond their original mission to make a social, environmental or economic impact, benefiting those around them.â€
Mike Fisher, President of GPI, says â€œComing on the heels of announcing our Mass Market Manufacturing program for Women and BIPOC businesses, this is quite an honor to be recognized for the effort our staff has been putting forward. Everything we do is focused on our customer relationships: being a strong partner, adding value to our customers, and in general, being a company that organizations want to do business with.â€
Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in 55 different categories â€“ from advertising to sustainability to retail, and more â€“ and in age-based, revenue-based, size-based, and impact-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive â€“ a huge success for the 241 honored in the list’s third year. Honorees for gold, silver, bronze, and general excellence across industries and categories are featured online at inc.com/best-in-business.
