The seven AIM-member family businesses together employ almost 21,000 people and had combined total revenues of approximately $11 billion in 2019.

“These companies underscore the central role that family-owned companies play in the Massachusetts economy. The growth of these enterprises also illustrates the importance of having our elected officials maintain a strong business climate here in the commonwealth,” said John Regan, President and Chief Executive Officer of AIM.
