8/25/2014-Medina, Ohio: Slate Rock Safety, LLC, an ecommerce retailer and distributor of safety clothing specializing in flame resistant (FR) clothing, was selected by Inc. Magazine as one of “America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies” for the third year in a row. Earning a spot on the Inc. 500 in 2012, and Inc. 5000 in 2013, Slate Rock Safety landed spot number 2008 on 2014’s list.

A major contributor to recent growth has been Slate Rock Safety Outfitters, a no-contract corporate clothing purchase program serving the oil and gas, electric utility, government, and manufacturing markets. “We’ve listened to our customers and used industry-leading technology to build Outfitters from the ground up,” said Kim Wilson, President and CEO. She added, “Outfitters has let us show our customers that every Slate Rock Safety employee is involved in making sure their needs are met. We will continue to invest in the technology behind Outfitters to ensure we’re offering the best solutions to our customers.”
 
Outfitters had seen substantial growth in 2013, and on track to almost double in size in 2014. Features that are supplying consistent growth include proprietary technology adaptable to customer needs, a broad range of product offerings, full customization, and support from a dedicated account manager with no contract.
 
This third appearance on Inc.’s coveted list follows a year of recognition in 2013, when Slate Rock Safety was recognized by Inc. Magazine, the Cascade Capital Corporation, the Medina County Economic Development Corporation, and the Weatherhead 100 for growth and entrepreneurship. When asked about the company’s accolades, Kim Wilson said, “We are so grateful for our customers. They’re the whole reason we’re here and growing.”
