Triple S was established in 1969 in Amherst NY by three men who were close friends. All three men had last names that began with an S, so they decided to name their business Triple S. Triple S began as a mail order fishing and hunting supplies store and was run out of the basement of one of the men’s houses until it became to big to do that. At that time the company was growing and the three men who started the business decided to go their separate ways. One of the men’s sons decided he would like to expand and continue the business. He moved the business out of the basement and into a warehouse where it quickly grew into the wholesaler it is today.
As the business grew, a bigger inventory meant the need for a bigger warehouse. Triple S moved to the Audubon Industrial Park in Amherst NY and grew to about 30 employees strong. Triple S is a family run business that provides affordable wholesale sporting goods to businesses all over the world.
