Community Ori

While there are many advantages of an international footprint, Mainstream Global is also focused locally, on the community where our business has its roots – Lawrence, Massachusetts. It’s our belief that a small and growing company can make a difference in the world business market – as well as in the community in which it is founded.

Since our inception in 2000, we have invested in local community development. Both our global headquarters and first processing center are located in Lawrence. Our business began as a small 600 square foot office with three employees and now occupies over 250,000 square feet globally. We continue to make significant investments in expansion and diversification of our business to best suit our partners demands.

The Inner City 100 Award is a national ranking designated for the fastest-growing companies in urban areas. The award is based on revenue growth over a five-year period. Mainstream Global proudly received this award in 2012.

Mainstream Global recognized with an Inner City 100 Award in 2012.

The Inner City 100 is a national ranking designated for the fastest-growing companies in America’s inner cities. The award is given each year, and winners are selected based on revenue growth over a five-year period. The program is intended to recognize the success of American businesses in urban areas and showcases that companies can not only survive in urban areas but also prosper through unique competitive advantage. While all award winners are in American cities, by no means do they do business only in their market. Most companies enjoy half their revenue from regional, national and international sales. Award winners have increased corporate visibility through the award, often helping the companies to gain financing, investors and contracts. Mainstream Global is proud to have received this award and together with all Inner City 100 award winners is producing jobs for the local community and stimulating the economy.
