Scout Boats earned a Roaring Twenties award as one of the 20 best-performing companies in South Carolina for the fifth consecutive year.

The honor is presented annually by SC Biz News and names South Carolina’s top 20 small and top 20 large companies based on dollar and percentage increases from the previous year. A profile of Scout Boats will be published in the winter issue of SCBIZ magazine. The winners were recognized during an Oct. 25 event.

“This is a prestigious statewide award, and we’re humbled that we were selected as one of the top 20 large companies for a fifth year in a row,” said Steve Potts, Scout CEO and founder, in a statement. “This has been quite an accomplishment for Scout, as I’ve been told few companies make it back-to-back years, much less five consecutive years, considering thousands of nominations and growing every year.”

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.
