CEO, Patriot Industries
Chair, GO Virginia Region 9 Council
Louisa, Virginia
Tom Click and his wife Sarah founded Patriot Aluminum in 2010, the only American Owned & Operated Family Business producing the full lines of Steel, Aluminum, and Stainless Steel Electrical Conduit Products. Patriot’s focus on the traditional American Values of hard work and innovation enabled the company to earn a spot on the Inc 5000 list of Fastest Growing Companies for 3 years in a row. While the company started with 1,000 sqft of space and a single $5,000 machine purchased on eBay; today Patriot ships worldwide, has close to $4,000,000 of advanced manufacturing equipment and facilities, and 60 employees many of whom are US Military Veterans. The Clicks are committed to advancing American Manufacturing with Tom actively lobbying Congress as part of an industry fly-in team, writing numerous op-eds on Tax Reform, and serving as Chair of the GO Virginia Initiative to create higher paying jobs. Tom received his MBA from the Gatton College of Business & Economics at the University of Kentucky.
