2022 Crain’s Chicago Fast 50: Morgan Li Named Finalist Fourth Time in 5 Years

News & Awards

Some big news from the Morgan Li team. After another year of hard work, new partners, and growth, we’ve once again found ourselves on the fifty fastest growing companies in Chicagoland. Named a finalist in the Crain’s Chicago Business Fast 50 for the fourth time in five years, Morgan Li continues to stand out among manufacturers and Chicago-area companies. Announced in a press release on June 16, 2022, we’re thrilled to find ourselves on this prestigious list.

Fourth Fast 50 Appearance in Five Years

From the Press Release:

Morgan Li, a custom fabricator of fixtures, furniture, and graphics for retail and hospitality brands, has today announced its inclusion to the Crain’s Chicago Fast 50. Based on independent financial review, Morgan Li was found to be one of Chicagoland’s fastest growing companies. This is the company’s fourth appearance on the Fast 50 in the past five years.

To qualify, a candidate must meet requirements set by Crain’s Chicago Business and accounting firm Plante Moran. Nearly 150 companies applied for consideration in 2022, the most in at the past decade according to Crain’s Chicago Researcher Sophie Rodgers.

“After the challenges that we and many others faced in 2020, it’s an honor to rejoin the ranks of Chicagoland’s fastest-growing organizations,” said Jonathan Rosenband, President of Morgan Li. “As one of the 50 finalists and one of the only manufacturers on the list, it’s a testament to the amazing work being done to serve our partners.”

The recognition from Crain’s Chicago Business comes on the heels of Morgan Li’s recently completed purchase of a 230,000 square foot facility minutes from the company headquarters. Paired with a redesigned and the launch of the company’s MORE THAN MADE branding, the company continues to invest in people, processes and equipment needed to serve its diverse base of customers.

“It’s been a wild ride, and we have a whole lot of exciting things planned,” said Andy Rosenband, CEO at Morgan Li. “We’re thrilled to find ourselves on this list for the fourth time. And with the worlds of retail and hospitality set to evolve in the post-pandemic world, we’re ready to take on our clients’ boldest plans.”

Growing Fast, Still Connected Enough to Care

At Morgan Li, we’re thrilled to find ourselves on this prestigious list. As one of, if not the only manufacturer to land on the Crain’s Chicago Fast 50, we’re proud to announce that we’re not stopping anytime soon. Not only do we still have a whole lot of capacity available domestically, we’ve just expanded to a new facility a few minutes from our headquarters. And that’s not even considering our significant international partnerships that expand our available production space to nearly 3.5 million square feet.

Pair this with our unique process, growing team of project management and customer service experts, and constant focus on doing the right way, and we’re still ready to provide the focus that our partners deserve.
