Scout Boats honored by South Carolina business magazine

Scout Boats was named a Roaring Twenties award recipient — one of the 20 best-performing large companies in South Carolina for 2015.

Scout Boats was named a Roaring Twenties award recipient — one of the 20 best-performing large companies in South Carolina for 2015.

This statewide honor is presented annually by SC Biz News and recognizes South Carolina’s best-performing small and large companies, based on both dollar and percentage increases in revenue from 2013-2014.

A profile of Scout Boats will be published in the winter issue of SC Biz magazine. All winners will be honored on Oct. 28 at the Marriott Columbia in Columbia, S.C.

“This is a prestigious statewide award, and we’re humbled that we were selected as one of the top 20 large companies again this year,” Scout CEO and founder Steve Potts said in a statement. “We’ve experienced positive growth in many areas of our company and market share, and we’re honored it’s being recognized from state awards to presidential candidates holding press conferences at our facility.”

To qualify for the Roaring Twenties designation, companies must have a physical presence in South Carolina and be a for-profit entity or a nonprofit organization, with some exceptions.
