Express Diagnostics Int'l, Inc.

Express Diagnostics named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies

EDI manufactures and distributes DrugCheck® onsite drugs of abuse tests, as well as a growing line of rapid alcohol screening and health diagnostics devices.


“For 32 years, Inc. has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies in America into a very exclusive club,” says Eric Schurenberg, Inc. editor in chief. “The Inc. 5000 was harder to get into this year than ever in its history. The median company on the list increased sales more than 140 percent since the start of 2010, while the average honoree grew a mind-boggling 468 percent. Those are results most companies could only dream of in the economy of the past three years.”


With its inclusion as an Inc. 5000 honoree, Express Diagnostics Int’l now shares a pedigree with well-known companies such as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Timberland, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle, and scores of other alumni.


“Express Diagnostics is thrilled to be named to the Inc. 5000,” says Paul Johnson, CEO of EDI. “This honor is the result of sustained dedication of our personnel and loyal customers, as well as the continued commitment of our vendor partners to satisfy the requirements of our ever-increasing volumes. Our substantial growth, particularly over the last three years, truly has been a team effort and EDI management wants to recognize all of those who made this Inc. 5000 honor possible. We look forward to even greater growth in the future with the dedicated, collaborative team that we’ve assembled.”


Express Diagnostics is based in Blue Earth, Minn., and has distribution partners in more than 60 countries. Founded in 2004, EDI also has company representatives in California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Texas, and Strasbourg, France.
