For the 2nd Time, Gearfire Appears on The Inc. 5000 as One of The Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America

August 18, 2022

Scottsdale,AZ – Inc. has revealed that Gearfire, the leader in end-to-end technology solutions within the firearms, sportfishing, and outdoor sports industries has made its annual Inc. 5000 list for a second straight year. Considered the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America, this list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

“At Gearfire, our mission is to ignite growth within the industries we serve by coupling end-to-end technology solutions with customer service that is second to none,” states Chad Seaverns, COO of Gearfire. We’ve made the Inc. 5000 list for a second year running because we care more, innovate more, and do more before 9:00 am than most businesses do all day!”

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Altogether, the average median revenue growth rate soared to an impressive 230% while the aggregated number of jobs added totaled 1,178,302 over the past three years.
