Every September, EC&M unveils the highly anticipated Top 50 electrical contractors listing, ranked specifically by electrical revenue. Although we've been presenting this list and comprehensive special report for more than a decade, this year we wanted to highlight the top-ranking firms. This photo gallery offers a sneak peek at the companies making it into the Top 20 spots, listed in descending order and based on 2013 electrical sales data.
Last years’ list of Top 50 electrical contractors found new pockets of opportunity and a slow return to normalcy, leading to the highest overall revenue total in the last five years. This elite group of companies posted $14 billion in total revenue for electrical and datacom services revenue in 2012, which marked a 9.4% increase from revenue reported for 2011 (which came in at $12.8 billion.) In 2013, respondents shattered that record with combined revenues of $15.7 billion, a clear indication that the electrical construction industry is on a steady road to economic recovery. Despite this upward trend, however, 2013 was not without its struggles — the nation’s largest electrical contractors were challenged with suddenly cancelled projects, meager margins, and a severe labor shortage.
To find out more about the driving forces behind these firms' success, details on what solidifies their position as leaders in the industry, hot and cold market analysis, and key trends shaping the business climate this year and next, read the full 2014 Top 50 Electrical Contractors Special Report and see the Top 50 List.
The original research EC&M conducts on behalf of the Top 50 article each year has become an invaluable resource for consultants, manufacturers, and electrical design and contracting firms, making it an EC&M institution.
