CHICAGO, Dec. 01, 2020 — While 2020 has been a challenging year for most, Endurance Breakdown Protection has persevered, earning global and national accolades from multiple reputable parties. For nearly two decades, Endurance has been a nationwide leader in vehicle service contracts, commonly known as extended auto warranties. Now, they are deepening their commitment to customers and employees amidst unprecedented economic conditions.
From successfully expanding their Endurance Elite Membership with added benefits for drivers, to implementing cloud-based technology to adapt to work-from-home needs, Endurance is proud to work as a diverse team to serve their customers and is equally proud of the recognition they’ve received as a result of these efforts.
“Endurance was built on saving people from the extremely high cost of breakdowns, and this is a year when Americans have needed economic relief the most,” said Paul Chernawsky, CEO and co-founder of Endurance Breakdown Protection. “Endurance’s mission is to ‘Empower Confidence for the Road Ahead,’ and we set out to build a company that people can trust and depend on. These awards are a true testament to our talented employees who make it all possible through teamwork and dedication, and I couldn’t be prouder.”
Endurance has won the following 2020 awards:
Earlier this year, Inc. magazine recognized Endurance on its 39th annual Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within America’s most dynamic segment—independent small businesses. Endurance has revolutionized the aftermarket vehicle service contract (VSC) industry by providing education, options, security, and service—both before and beyond the sale of a coverage plan—and with a 229% increase in sales over the past three years, customers are seeing the value.
Inc. also recognized Endurance as one of the 250 most successful companies in the Midwest, earning a spot on the annual Inc. 5000 Midwest list. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this is the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. In 2018 alone, companies on the Inc. Midwest list employed more than 27,000 people and added $13 billion to the Midwest economy. Endurance has offices in Illinois and Missouri, and with an average growth rate of 215% from 2016 to 2018, they have had a strong impact on the Midwest automotive industry market since 2006.
Endurance gained global accolades after being recognized by Crain’s Chicago Business for two awards—Crain’s Fast 50 Company—with 5-year growth of 321%—and Chicago’s Largest Privately Held Companies. Both awards recognize companies with outstanding revenue growth between 2017 and 2019.
