The FAB 40 list is created with the help of those metal fabricators willing to share their revenue numbers and company information with The Fabricator and its readership.

The Fabricator takes the information and identifies the 40 most successful metal fabricating operations on the basis of 2023 reported revenue. (Because most, if not all, companies are privately held, independent verification of reported revenue is not possible.) More specifically, The Fabricator looks for information from companies that earn the majority of its revenue from contract and custom manufacturing involving sheet metal, plate fabrication, or tube fabrication. The results are published in The Fabricator’s June edition.
