Inc. magazine named 25 Arlington companies to its annual list of the nation’s 5,000 fastest-growing companies, the Inc. 5000. Piedmont Global Language Solutions tops the list of Arlington companies with an impressive 1,353% growth rate. MarginEdge, HUNGRY, Sweatworks and Hyperion Technologies are the top five Arlington companies.

“We are honored to have made it onto the Inc 5000 list for 2022,” said Bo Davis, CEO of MarginEdge. “This is no doubt thanks to the diligence and dedication of our team and support from clients who believe in us and our product. Our growth over the last year is a testament to this and we are thrilled our team is getting the recognition it deserves for those accomplishments.”

Several Arlington companies have made the Inc. 5000 list more than five times. Fors Marsh Group has been named to the list an impressive nine times. Changeis and 540.co have been recognized six times, and Enterprise Knowledge has earned their spot five times.

“We’re thrilled to be included among the Inc. 5000,” said Ben Garthwaite, CEO of Fors Marsh Group. “This is our 9th time on the list, reinforcing the notion that operating our business to be a force for good, is also good for business. Community has always been essential to our growth and we are incredibly grateful to be part of the local community in Arlington as well as the international community of Certified B Corps.”

To qualify for the Inc. 5000, companies must show the past three calendar years of sales to prove their revenue. Additionally, they must be U.S.-based, privately held and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. Revenue in the initial year must have been at least $100,000, and revenue in the most recent year must have been at least $2 million.
