Inc. 5000 list includes Seattle-based company for 7th time

Industrial Revolution, the Seattle manufacturer of essential outdoor accessories, has once again been recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country by Inc. magazine. For the 7th time, the prestigious Inc. 5000 list includes Industrial Revolution, highlighting the company for its continued evolution.

The Inc. 5000 list is compiled annually to showcase the most successful private companies in the U.S. Editors take into account a company’s overall revenue growth over a 3-year period. Industrial Revolution, which manufactures and distributes products under brands such as UCOIntovaMoraknivEsbit, and Light My Fire, saw a 66% growth rate from 2012-2015, with a gross revenue of $15.3 million in 2015.

“We are so proud to be recognized by Inc. for the seventh time,” says Graeme Esarey, president of Industrial Revolution. “We wouldn’t have this kind of sustained growth over the years without our innovative product designers, key retail partners and, of course, loyal customers. They are what makes this company such a success.”

Industrial Revolution will be formally recognized during the Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala next month in San Antonio, Texas. You can find the full list of companies included on the 2016 Inc. 5000 here.
