For the 4th Straight Year, Slate Rock Safety is named One of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America by INC. Magazine


9/14/2015-Medina, Ohio: Slate Rock Safety, LLC, an industry leading ecommerce retailer and distributor specializing in flame resistant clothing (FRC), was selected by INC. Magazine as one of “America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies” for the fourth year in a row. This follows a spot on the INC 500 in 2012, and appearances on the INC 5000 in 2013 and 2014.

For 2015, Slate Rock Safety is number 2106 on INC’s 5000. Kim Wilson, President and CEO, stated, “It is such an honor to be included among so many great companies.” Additionally, Slate Rock Safety was 13th out of 50 in the Cleveland Metro area, and #59 of 175 in Ohio.

 The company has seen double-digit growth year-after-year for the past 7 years straight. Kim Wilson attributes much of the recent growth to Outfitters, a new stocking program, and fulfillment upgrades. “All of our programs and initiatives come from listening to our customers,” she said. “We will continue to invest in our people, our facilities, and our technology to make sure we are keeping up with the changing needs of our customers, and providing the best experience we can for them.”  

 Providing the best customer experience possible has been a cornerstone of Slate Rock Safety’s culture. “No one at Slate Rock Safety holds the title of customer service, because it is believed that each and every Slate Rock Safety employee has a role in customer service and customer satisfaction,” stated Kim.  “When one department is assigned the title of customer service it implies that that is there is a single department responsible for servicing the customer, and that is not the culture at Slate Rock Safety.” She added, “We should never forget that it is our customers who make what we do each and every day possible…not management, not technology, but our customers who make it all possible.”
