IW U.S. 500: Top Fabricated Metals Companies (slideshow)

Aug. 15, 2022
The largest producers of fabricated metal products from the IW U.S. 500 list of largest publicly traded manufacturing companies in the country.

Making things out of metal was a pretty good business to be in during 2021. As a group, sales were up 14.3% to nearly $100 billion, based on statistics from the IW U.S. 500 list of the largest manufacturing companies in the United States.

Part of the revenue increases was inflationary, passing along cost increases for metals to consumers. However, the underlying financial strength of the sector was clear in its 41.5% increase in profitability – effectively a return to profits following 2020’s COVID-19 shutdowns.

Fabricated metals producers weren’t the fast-growing businesses in the economy last year. For more details on which businesses grew the fastest, read the story from IndustryWeek’s summer issue.
