US Patriot Tactical, the nation’s largest retail supplier to military personnel, has been named to the 2014 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private U.S. companies and Internet Retailer’s Second 500 list of online retailers.
“We are very excited to be among the nation’s elite companies,” says Paul Yoo, President of US Patriot. “It’s our honor to support those who risk their lives for us every day, and our customers will tell you our sincere dedication to them is why we are succeeding.”
US Patriot is on the Inc. 5000 list due to its growth rate of 75%. By adding 29 new jobs and increasing revenue by over $8.5m in the last 3 years, the company earned the number 3984 spot on the list. Ranked at number 667 on the Internet Retailer Second 500 list and 6th in its merchandise category, US Patriot is named as one of the “fastest-growing, up-and-coming web merchants.”
Founded in 1999 by former Army Armor Officer Phil Dee, US Patriot started as a small, off-post store at Fort Jackson. Today, the company has 15 stores in nine states, all on or near major military bases, and has plans to continue expansion into additional states in the coming years. The website accounts for nearly half of the company’s sales, with orders shipping worldwide from its 20,000 square foot warehouse in Columbia, South Carolina.
With over 70% of its employees coming from all branches of the military or law enforcement, US Patriot truly is “by soldiers, for soldiers.”
