The Electrical Manufacturers' Billion-Dollar Club - Largest U.S.-Based Electrical Manufacturers

The chart below provides sales data and employee counts for the largest electrical manufacturers in the world. Sales data is for 2013, and employee counts are for the total company unless otherwise noted.

Notes: 1 - Estimate from Forbes magazine; 2 - Estimate from Hoovers; 3 - Dun & Bradstreet.  While the data listed above has the highest sales volumes first, it’s not intended to be a ranking, because the actual electrical sales for companies where electrical products are just one part of a diverse product focus and are not broken out individually is substantially lower than the total.
