Announcing EC&M's 2016 Top 10 Electrical Design Firms

It's time to unveil EC&M's highly anticipated Top 40 electrical design firms list for 2016, ranked specifically by electrical design revenue earned in 2015. This photo gallery offers a sneak peek at the companies making it into the Top 10 spots, listed in descending order.

Electrical design firms appear to have enjoyed another banner year in 2015, boosted by a largely favorable, if still uncertain, macroeconomic climate. In total, this year's respondents posted total electrical design revenues in 2015 of $1.858 billion, which is up 10.6% from $1.680 billion reported in 2014.

Up from two-thirds last year, nearly three-fourths of respondents now report facing a serious labor shortage of engineers in the future, identifying the three most difficult positions to fill as supervising engineers, design engineers, and project engineers. To find out more about the driving forces behind these firms' successes, details on what solidifies their position as leaders in the industry, hot and cold markets, and key trends shaping the business climate this year (including what firms think about the new industry buzzwords "Internet of Things" and "Lighting as a Service"), read the full 2016 Top 40 Electrical Design Firms Special Report.

The original research EC&M conducts on behalf of the Top 40 article each year has become an invaluable resource for consultants, manufacturers, and electrical design and contracting firms, making it an EC&M institution readers wait for every year.
