Slate Rock Safety Recognized by the Weatherhead 100 for the 3rd Year in a Row
12/8/2015, Medina, OH – Slate Rock Safety, a specialty distributor specializing in PPE and work apparel, is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2015 Weatherhead 100 company for the third consecutive year. Slate Rock Safety was presented with the honor by Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management and the Cleveland Council of Smaller Enterprises. This award distinguishes the region’s 100 fastest growing companies based on sales from the last five years, recognizing in Slate Rock Safety’s sales growth of 316.46%.
“We are truly honored to be included in the Weatherhead 100 for the third consecutive time,” said Kim Wilson, President and CEO. “Although our industry is changing rapidly and our customers continue to face new and unique challenges, we’ve maintained our growth by evolving to meet these challenges and adapt to our customers’ needs.
Slate Rock Safety has seen much of its growth in Outfitters, an industry-leading online uniform program. “Slate Rock Safety Outfitters has given us the unique opportunity to develop a truly customized solution, no matter the size of the customer, or the industry they’re in,” said Kim.
The opening of an additional fulfillment center earlier this year has also allowed the company to implement new inventory and fulfillment technologies to further increase the scalability of Slate Rock Safety Outfitters. “We’ve become bigger over the years, but no matter what we’re still able to give personal service. Everyone at Slate Rock Safety is here to serve the customer,” Kim concluded.
