Precision rifle manufacturer Daniel Defense has been ranked as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S., achieving number 1568 by Inc. magazine on its 33rd annual Inc. 500/5000. It is the third consecutive year that the manufacturer has earned its place on the list, which is comprised of America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“I am particularly proud that we achieved this goal while installing the infrastructure for long-term growth and because it is more difficult to grow at this pace as a mid-size company, said Marty Daniel, President and CEO of Daniel Defense.
Daniel said that now that the company has all of its infrastructure in place from design, engineering, manufacturing all the up to marketing and sales, they are prepared to execute five-, 10- and 20-year growth plans.
Marty Daniel founded Daniel Defense at the turn of the 21st century. From its humble beginnings as a start-up company, creating rails and accessories for the AR-15 platform in small batches, Daniel Defense has grown exponentially over the last decade, and is now known for its premium line of rifles and firearms accessories. It now has two locations and a combined 137,000 square feet of available manufacturing space.
