CompanyBox Nominated for Charlotte Business Journal Fast 50 Awards
Each year the Charlotte Business Journal (CBJ) honors the fastest-growing private companies in the Charlotte region. For 2020, Companybox was one of the businesses proudly selected for this prestigious Fast 50 Award.
Launching as a small startup in 2014, CompanyBox has always had the goal to grow strong internally while striving towards outward expansion. “We are very excited and honored to be included in this group,” says Louie DeJesus, Founder and CEO of CompanyBox. “We continually focus on innovative solutions that lead to new offerings for our customer base. It’s wild to look back at where we started and where we are today.”
In the beginning CompanyBox had just two employees; Louie and his son Kyle DeJesus. If you could travel to the past, you’d see the original set up in a 16,000 square foot building, with only one printer. Today, CompanyBox has expanded employee headcount and a new 105,000 sq foot space with plans to add a third shift and additional high-tech equipment in Q1 of 2021.
“Not only does this award celebrate the new jobs we’re creating in Charlotte, it also recognizes the effort of all our dedicated employees who have helped us grow this company,” says DeJesus.
With a 200% customer growth rate, CompanyBox’s dedication to cultivate robust customer relationships has proven to be meaningful. “We’ve specifically put an emphasis on building a strong customer support team,” adds CompanyBox President, Kyle DeJesus. “Those are the people differentiating us from just another packaging company.”
“We’ll never stop innovating. We look forward to continuing our work in Charlotte focusing on sustainable custom packaging. I’m excited to see what next year brings,” concludes DeJesus.
Be sure to tune into CBJ’s Fast 50 virtual awards on Thursday, December 3 at 4pm (EST) where the rankings of all 50 companies will be revealed.
