The 2013 IndustryWeek 50 Best U.S. Manufacturers

The Industryweek 50 Best U.S. Manufacturers is IW's exclusive annual ranking of America's top-performing public manufacturers.

IW compiles the list by ranking the IW U.S. 500 companies based on their financial performance in six key areas over a three-year period. This includes inventory turns, profit margin, asset turns, return on assets, return on equity, and revenue growth. The most recent year accounts for 50% of the calculation, while 2011 is weighted at 30% and 2010 contributes 20%.

This list was published in the July 2013 issue of IndustryWeek.
