The ranking measured companies’ growth both in terms of revenue and employment, and the Lodz-originated company earned the high, 17th spot on the list.

The winners received award certificates from Dr Ingo Friedrich, Vice-President of the European Parliament, and Gabriel Masfurroll, the President of Europe’s 500. The participants also attended lectures by Klaus Regling, Chief Executive Officer of the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) and Managing Director of the European Stabilty Mechanism.
‘ Companies from Italy, Spain and Greece have shown surprisingly strong growth. Progress in resolving the Euro crisis is removing important uncertainties for investors, consumers, banks and financial markets, thus supporting growth in Europe. Re-establishing confidence is to be understood as the primary goal’, said Klaus Regling.
The IESE Business School reported that approximately 50.000 new jobs were created by Europe’s 500 companies last year.
‘It is great satisfaction to be able to employ people when many other companies struggle with the economic crisis, and when the situation on the market is so challenging. Our success is a result of our efforts to sustain steady growth, on the one hand, and create a stable and safe work environment for our employees, on the other’, said Paweł Szczerkowski, the CEO of Ericpol.
Europe’s 500 is the European organisation and networking platform for growth companies and their entrepreneurs. The organization, founded in 1996, represents nearly 2,500 growth companies from across Europe, with the common goal of contributing to growth and more employment in Europe and promoting entrepreneurship. Europe’s 500 does not see itself as representing interests in the classic sense, but rather as an NGO, offering its know-how and expertise for the collective good. Europe’s 500 together with its partner IESE publish the list of the top growth companies in Europe and organise its annual conference “The European Growth Summit” for the European growth entrepreneurs.
