2023 IW U.S. 500: Top Aerospace and Defense Companies (slideshow)

July 19, 2023
The largest producers of airplanes, satellites, rockets and other flying things from the IW U.S. 500 list of largest publicly traded manufacturing companies in the country.

The list of top ten aerospace and defense companies (by 2022 earnings) closely resembles 2021's list, with the usual jockeying for position. Notable changes include General Dynamics making a return to one of the top ten slots after dropping off last year, Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc., Howmet Aerospace Inc. and L3Harris Technologies entering this year's top ten, and Spirit Aerosystems Holdings Inc. just missing the cut at 11th place. The Boeing Company is the only member of the top ten that posted a negative profit margin.
