KPaul's founder and president, Kevin Paul, commented when learning of the award: "This recognition is a huge achievement by our managers and staff. The Inc. 500 represents all that is great about entrepreneurship in America, and we now stand among many great companies. KPaul prides itself in honoring veterans, embracing diversity and serving the community. We have differentiated ourselves from other companies selling to government customers, by keeping service as priority-one as we work to be the 'go-to' solutions provider to the markets we serve." Kevin Paul, himself a veteran of the Iraq conflict, earned an MBA from the Kelly School of Business at Indiana University prior to starting his company.
This year, KPaul posted a phenomenal growth rate which led to its #10 ranking. The company has grown steadily since its founding in 2005 when it operated with five employees in a 20x20 space. In 2008 KPaul expanded sales divisions to include IT hardware and software, industrial supplies, office supplies, and medical supplies. The company also recently was awarded a blanket purchase agreement from the United States Army to supply office supplies across that service branch, an accomplishment Kevin Paul characterizes as a milestone in the company's history. "It is this type of performance that has fueled our growth."
KPaul employs more than 85 people in its Indianapolis location, with offices also in Chicago, Phoenix, Portland and San Antonio. Company plans include adding regional sales locations, including Washington DC in 2011, growing its sales force to 200.
Representatives from KPaul will attend a gala with other Inc. 500 winners in Washington DC in October.
KPaul Properties LLC, headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, operates four divisions, KPaul Industrial, KPaul Medical, KPaul Office, and KPaul IT Solutions. The company also supplies branded product under the TekMentum and Sanigo brands.
