“This is a very impressive group to be associated with. I feel that we have made monumental progress in the 2021 and 2022 fiscal years to even be considered with this group,” stated Norm Poppe, CEO. “Many of the companies are just past the “startup” phase and in a growth mode to be considered “second stage”. Applewood Seed’s inclusion as a finalist represents a renaissance in the company, both in the recognition of the company’s growth and as an employee-owned company.”
ASCO’s priorities have paid off. Since 2018, the company’s workforce has increased by 30%, and revenues have grown by 40% in that time.
