A Leading online luxury Egyptian cotton retailer, ExceptionalSheets.com, has secured financing through the Patriot Express Loan offered through the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Paul Saunders, the Owner and Founder of ExceptionalSheets.com, served in the Marines for 7 years and retired as a Captain. His military service record allowed him to qualify for secured financing extended through the S.W. ISBDC who provides confidential business consulting to help entrepreneurs start a business and established companies grow. According to Doug Claybourn, Business Advisor with the Southwest ISBDC, “We’re pleased that Exceptional Sheets chose southwestern Indiana to establish its corporate headquarters. They have made significant investment to launch their business in Evansville and have quickly become a big player in the competitive e-commerce market. This type of company attracts top talent and investors to our community.”

ExceptionalSheets.com has experienced explosive business growth over the first 8 months of 2013 seeing a 51% increase in growth month over month revenue. To facilitate this growth, the company has recently added 10,000 sq ft of office and warehouse space. They also expect to double their work force by adding additional employees in sales and customer service over the next few months. The secured financing through the Patriot Express Loan will help fund the growth and expansion.
