NEW YORK, September 21, 2022 – Today, Inc. revealed that Lab Alley, a leader in lab and food grade essential chemicals is No. 882 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segments—its independent businesses, Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names also gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

We are proud of what Lab Alley accomplished, from beginning as a passion project, selling essential chemicals in the B2B space out of our house in Cleveland, Ohio with only $1000, to an e-commerce chemical enterprise that has over 70,0000 customers,” says Co-Founders, Fred Elabed and Holly Elabed.

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are successful and have demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

“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.”

During the COVID lockdown, Lab Alley supplied chemicals to companies in need of hand sanitizers and disinfectants. Subsequently after, Lab Alley became the #1 provider of ethanol and hydrogen peroxide to the B2B market. Lab Alley’s origin story was to provide food and organic grade high purity essential chemicals at competitive prices with 1-2 day shipping in the US and Canada. Lab Alley is honored to be among Inc. 5000’s fastest growing private companies in 2022.

I would like to personally thank Scott Omelianuk at Inc. Magazine for acknowledging Lab Alley’s growth in the Life Sciences industry. We at Lab Alley are thrilled to receive this well-deserved and prestigious award again. It's amazing to be in the company of equally renowned brands. I built Lab Alley with a big mission – to supply essential chemicals to make a better world, and that is what we are doing every day,” says Holly Elabed, Co-Founder of Lab Alley, LLC.
