Top 300 Electronics Companies for 2003

The Reed Research Group has released it list of Top 300 electronics companies for 2003 (CY2002 - always a year behind). Once again, IBM sits at the top with $81.2B in revenues. HP is #2 with $63.0B, Dell is #8. Microsoft ranks #12 at $30.8B - does that include software (hard to imagine that many keyboards and mice sold)? Intel hit #14. Motorola faired well in spite of itself at with$26.7B at #15. Among defense companies, Raytheon got 29th place, Northrop Grumman #44, GE #45, L-Mart #57, Marconi #58, STMicroelectronics #59 $6.3B, BAE at #96, and General Dynamics at #101 at $3.7B. For TE manufacturers, Agilent managed #62 with $6.0B, Teradyne is #238. Ford, at #73 and $4.9B, beat Delphi (GM) at #75, DaimlerChrysler at #95. Dead last at #300 is Network Appliance (who?) with a paltry $855M. The top contract manufacturer for the year is Flextronics, followed by Solectron. Magma Design Automation was the #1 small electronics company. There's lots more in the publication. How do you get it?
