The Fabricator's 2016 FAB 40

The FAB 40 list is created with the help of those metal fabricators willing to share their revenue numbers and company information with The FABRICATOR and its readership.

The first step in the information gathering occurred in February when an email was sent out to slightly more than 1,000 publication subscribers who also identified their companies as being part of the fabricated metal product sector, as defined by the North American Industry Classification System. The email requested company financial information, feedback on current operations, and outlook for 2015. A follow-up e-mail was sent in March to those companies that did not respond to previous attempts to contact them. Note that companies were not asked to break down headcounts by full-time, part-time, and temporary workers, so the number of employees shown may not necessarily reflect the number of full-time-equivalent employees.

These companies that submitted responses were then ranked according to self-reported 2015 revenue. Because most, if not all, companies are privately held, independent verification of reported revenue was not possible.
