Burkeville, VA, August 12, 2015 – Inc. magazine today ranked YakAttack LLC No. 507 on its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.

A 3 year sales growth of 902% from 2011 to 2014 puts YakAttack in the 90th percentile of an elite group of companies making the list, which represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.

“This is a special moment for us,” said YakAttack President Luther Cifers. “Since starting in a friend’s basement with a minimal investment back in 2009, we’ve worked relentlessly to grow YakAttack organically, creating American manufacturing jobs by providing the marketplace with simple, smart solutions for kayak and small boat rigging. Our team has worked hard and we’re very proud of this accomplishment.”

The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com, is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

"The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident."

YakAttack LLC is a developer and manufacturer of rigging accessories for paddlesports, small boat, and marine markets, focused primarily on kayak fishing. Located in Burkeville, VA, YakAttack currently employs 24 people.
