-- A family business that originated over 40 years ago in New York City serving handcrafted luggage and travel accessories to local boutiques, Royce Leather has grown in international exposure and can be found in online and retail locations across the world.
Its GPS Tracking and RFID Blocking wallets have garnered the company widespread acclaim on The Today Show, Fox News
, The Los Angeles Times
, and Glamour Magazine
, and these innovative wallets have been a critical catalyst for the firm’s growth.
“When people talk about the Inc. 5000, they talk about innovation,”
says Kathy Bauer, second-generation owner of Royce Leather. “At Royce,we emphasize a company culture that motivates our already-exceptional team to reach higher and achieve more. We try to cultivate an environment in which our team feels empowered to develop and pursue ideas that drive our company forward – a difficult thing to achieve in the modern business world – and that’s where true innovation lies, in the power of the collective.”
According to third-generation family member and Marketing Director Billy Bauer, “Our growth is not an accident;
it is the product of a company with well-defined values. Companies like Royce Leather cannot grow if employees are not engaged and if they do not serve their customers well. They cannot grow if they do not maintain an innovative culture that solves problems and believes that good enough never is
. They cannot grow if they do not reinvest their profits in their employees and customers. The Inc. 500|5000 List is exceptional because the companies included are exceptional. And we are honored to be among them.”
