Royce® Leather Ranks No. 3284 On The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 List


NEW YORK, August 21, 2013 – Inc. magazine ranked Royce Leather No. 3284 on its 7th annual Inc.500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs.


“As Royce Leather celebrates its 40th year in business, we are proud of our remarkable achievement, with
revenue growth still rising in the face of adverse business conditions. Our growth is not an accident; it is the product of a company with well-defined values. Companies like Royce Leather cannot grow if employees are not engaged and if they do not serve their customers well. They cannot grow if they do not maintain an innovative culture that solves problems and believes that good enough never is. They cannot grow if they do not reinvest their profits in their employees and customers. The Inc. 500|5000 List is exceptional because the companies included are exceptional. And we are honored to be among them!” declares Royce Leather eCommerce Director Kathy Bauer.


In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2013 Inc. 500|5000 companies is an impressive 142%. The companies on this year’s list report created over 520,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $241 billion. “The companies in the Inc. 5000 are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.


Bauer states, “As a company that originated from a small showroom and warehouse in New York and now has distribution channels global in scope, this reaffirms the noteworthy transformation of Royce Leather over time. However, ultimately, revenue increases do not define Royce Leather. Instead, what discerns Royce are our fundamental company values, our employees’ unrelenting work ethic, our loyal clients and our community involvement and charitable donations.
