In 2017, EASI received again a Trends Gazelles nomination, which rewards companies that show a fast growth in turnover, number of employees and added value. This year is a little bit special because it's already the 10th time we are nominated.
What are the Trends Gazelles?
Trends Gazelles are a famous reward for companies, given by Roularta's TrendsTop, one of the most famous Belgian business databases.
Based on quantitative data, they rank companies following certain criteria :
- number of employees
These 3 criteria are evaluated for the period of the five previous years.
Based on the results of this analysis, they rank companies in 3 different categories:
- small enterprises (less than 1 million € gross margin)
- medium enterprises (1 - 10 million € turnover)
- large enterprises (more than 10 million € turnover)
We are categorised in the large enterprises.
What does it mean?
Given the fact that this ranking is based on pure facts & figures, companies that are nominated as Trends Gazelles are companies that are doing a great job. There is no doubt about it. During the previous 5 consecutive years, they showed an important growth. What else do you want to know?
10 times Trends Gazelle
In 2017, EASI exists for 18 years. During this period of 18 years, we were nominated no less than 10 times as Trends Gazelles.
Even more, since 2006, we were nominated every year, except in 2008 and 2013.
I can assure you that we are doing everything to be nominated again and again and again in the coming years. As our CEO likes to say: "The best is yet to come".
