Inc. magazine recently revealed that Stone Glacier made their annual list of fastest growing privately held companies in America. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses and Stone Glacier is proud to be ranked No. 1,199 out of 5,000 and to be ranked No. 3 out of all Montana based businesses.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.” “It’s an honor, and great validation for our team, to be named to the list of the fastest growing companies in America. To represent, not only the State of Montana, but also the hunting and outdoor community on a list of such well-known and respected companies is something we are very proud of” says CEO of Stone Glacier, Jeff Sposito.
So what makes Stone Glacier different?
Here are a few things we pride ourselves in and that we attribute to much of our success…
- Top-notch Customer Service – Our top priority is to ensure everyone that interacts with our business gets honest, friendly, and knowledgeable customer service at every step of the way…not just at the time of purchase. When you call Stone Glacier, a real person that actually hunts and uses our products will answer the phone. We offer a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee and a Lifetime Warranty on all of our products.
- The Highest Quality Products – One of the things we are most proud of is our ability to design products for the ultimate in functionality and to be the best of the best. Since we are a small privately owned company we are not constrained by the corporate pressures to meet specific margin goals or price points. This commonly requires companies to utilize sub-par textiles or processes to cut cost.
- Unapologetically True to Ourselves –We are a hunting company and we love to hunt. We also cuss, drink beer, and have a good time. We aren’t afraid to show the realities of hunting. We don’t feel the need to justify hunting by hiding behind the curtain of harvesting our own food. Yes, we do eat what we kill, and we enjoy that, but we also believe it is ok to just enjoy hunting alone for what it is.
- We Give Back – Stone Glacier and our employee’s are passionate about wildlife conservation and avid supporters of our rights to hunt and own firearms as American freedoms. We were one of the first businesses to be certified by 2% for Conservation and we continue to volunteer 1% of our time and give back 1% of our sales annually to hunting related non-profit organizations.
