FAB 40 list debuts on thefabricator.com

August 16, 2011

FMA Communications Inc. has announced the online debut of the 2011 FAB 40 company list on its Web site.

The list, posted under the "FAB 40" navigational tab or directly at www.thefabricator.com/fab40, ranks the most successful U.S. metal fabricating companies as profiled in the June 2011 issue of The FABRICATOR®. The FAB 40 list is created with the input from those metal fabricators willing to share their revenue numbers and company information with The FABRICATOR and its readership.

"The FAB 40 list has quickly become an important resource for fabricators looking for solutions in today's manufacturing environment," said Jim Gorzek, associate publisher of FMA Communications Inc. "The list is beneficial to both the companies listed as well as the readers, and it has become a fast-growing feature in the magazine and now online."
