Automotive key replacement and reconditioning services provider Car Keys Express earned a spot on Inc. 5000 for the fifth consecutive year.

LOUISVILLE, KY—October 21, 2020—Inc. Magazine recently announced Car Keys Express is again featured on the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies in the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known companies first gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

To be awarded a spot on Inc. 5000’s annual list multiple times is not an easy task. Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied over the years, only a fraction are recognized more than once. Maintaining a winning streak on the coveted list for a fifth consecutive year is truly an extraordinary accomplishment—putting the brand in elite company.

“We’re proud to win the Inc. 5000 award for the fifth year in a row. This honor is a direct result of our team’s commitment to innovation, strengthening our position as industry leader," said Mark Lanwehr, Founder and CEO of Car Keys Express. “Our new expansion into the retail sector demonstrates two things. First, there’s massive latent demand for inexpensive and convenient replacement of car keys. Second, retailers recognize the value proposition of our unique, universal products: simplicity, convenience, and affordability . Since founding the company in 2002, my goal has always been to bring automotive key replacement back to retail. The success of the products and services we’re rolling out now proves that dream is finally becoming a reality.”
