Methodology

The TCP100 companies are ranked by their total North American revenue for the previous year (2009). Our goal is to show the large scope of the companies involved in concrete production, so producers are listed by their parent company's name and total revenue. Some figures were for fiscal years.

Revenue figures and other information were acquired through questionnaires, telephone, and e-mail requests. Revenue for companies that did not provide information was obtained through annual reports, press releases, media sources, and the databases of LexisNexis, Hoovers, Manta, and the Gale Business and Company Resource Center.
