Delta Defense, LLC Recognized as One of America’s Fastest Growing Companies

WEST BEND, WI-( Inc. magazine today revealed that Delta Defense, LLC based in West Bend, Wisconsin, is once again among our country’s fastest growing companies with its ranking on the 37th annual Inc. 5000, which is a compilation of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Delta Defense also ranked No. 9 in Top Milwaukee Companies and No. 17 in Top Wisconsin Companies. This is the 7th year in a row Delta Defense, LLC has made it on the list, which has been done by only 141 of the total 5000 companies listed.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of America’s fastest growing private companies and one of Wisconsin’s economic success stories,” said Tim Schmidt, President of Delta Defense. “For the seventh year in a row, we have been featured on this prestigious ranking. We are very proud of what our Delta Defense team has accomplished in recent years and we look forward to continued success moving forward in the years to come.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”


The 2018 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2014 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2014. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2017. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2014 is $100,000; the minimum for 2017 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at

I am extremely fortunate to be in this weekend’s DSF Instructor class and stopped by the USCCA building today. Not only do they provide an invaluable service, but the passion, professionalism and absolute customer-centric focus of everyone I encountered on my all-too brief tour is abundantly clear. Congratulations to the entire team! *** And thank you, Rob, for the incubation of this program… it is a game-changer!

I joined also many years ago and finally to the time to become an instructor. With all the classes being developed and presented I have became a better teacher and private citizen who also carries. It has enhanced my knowledge from military service and allowed me to provide that knowledge to many others. Could go on with all the positive features that Delta Defense and USCCA provides but that would take a book.

Kudos to Tim – he has made this company amazing over the years since he started. I joined pretty much as soon as I saw his first magazine (that rather thin blue thing!).

I was proud to have had published three cover pictures in the magazine in the earlier years – around 2015 I think it was and, in recent years have subscribed to the Defense Shield – hoping of course to never have to use it!

Keep up the great work Tim and your excellent team.

As a life member of the USCCA, I joined during the early years because their platform made sense. God forbid I had to use my firearm (or any other weapon), USCCA would have my back.

I am proud to be a part of this great company.

Actually, Yes, it is cool to have my team’s approach to defensive shooting skill development integrated into one of the fastest growing companies in the United States!

Our second large DSF Level 1 & 2 Instructor Development Course is being run this weekend out of USCCA HQ in Wisconsin. Over 40 candidates will be working with about a dozen certified instructors and 4 Training Counselors. Last month, a similar event resulted in 25 newly certified Level 1 Instructors in this new program!
