In its first year on the Inc. 5000 list, UNCS placed 3501 and is the only entrant in the wholesale distributor sector to join the 'Business Products & Services' industry ranking. The company has incorporated various technological advancements along with a culture of fun to achieve market separation and success.

"It is a great honor to be recognized in such an esteemed publication. The successes that our company has achieved in the past few years are a clear reflection of our tremendous workforce, innovative technologies, a willingness to be different and loyal and supportive clients," said Brett Rose, CEO and Founder of United National Consumer Suppliers.

In its eighth year, UNCS has grown from 2 to 16 employees and recently celebrated its first $1 million month in April 2010 then again in May and June, setting the company up to surpass its best year to date by 30 percent. What sets UNCS apart is true personalized customer service, a willingness to break up packages and repackage items to adapt to retailer's requirements, ship to different places on request, and an unwavering eagerness to sell to any retailer regardless of size, from national chains to family-owned convenience stores. UNCS's ability to store goods and ship from one of its 21 warehouses located throughout the United States and one in London and Toronto cuts down on freight costs and logistical nightmares.

"We had no choice but to build our business using different lenses. We didn't as much reengineer our machine as much as build a new machine all together," continued Mr. Rose. "This is an industry deeply embedded in traditional deployment of business organisms. In order for us to gain market share, we capitalized on proprietary technologies, supply chain advantages, tremendous connectivity with our clients and a company culture that is built on FUN, FUN, FUN," concluded Mr. Rose.
