Online Retailer Makes List For 6th Consecutive Year

BOLINGBROOK, IL (May 31, 2013) - Today Power Equipment Direct announced it made Internet Retailer's Top 500 list for the sixth consecutive year.

"In 2012, Power Equipment Direct worked hard to improve the quality and experience of its sites," said founder & president, Jon Hoch. "Its rapid growth into new categories has allowed PED to offer a full breadth of power equipment from the top brands at the most competitive prices."

Power Equipment Direct experienced significant growth in 2012, moving up several rankings from the past year, according to Internet Retailer.

The online power equipment retailer ranked as the 194th largest e-retail company in the United States and the seventh largest e-tailer in the hardware/home improvement category.

Internet Retailer's definitive ranking and analysis of America's 500 largest e-retailers is based on annual 2012 Internet sales, researched by Internet Retailer and confirmed by retailers. This report includes company financial, operational and performance data, as well as vendors in key categories.

Hoch founded Power Equipment Direct in his basement after an awful experience shopping for a lawn mower in 2002. Today, the Bolingbrook, IL-based e-commerce company operates thirteen niche web stores.

"We consider it an honor to be ranked among the largest home improvement retailers in the world," said Hoch. "The results are remarkable, considering we only sell power equipment products."

Jon Hoch, president and founder of Power Equipment Direct, Inc., will address how B2B retailers can succeed in the search marketing world at the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition 2013 in Chicago, IL. Hoch's presentation will take place from 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on June 6.
