Editor's Memo: The Best of the Best

August 1, 2012

Welcome to our first annual ASI Top 25 issue! The ASI Top 25 ranks the leading manufacturers of adhesives and sealants by revenue to provide readers with an overview of the top players in the industry. Each listing includes details such as annual revenue for 2011 (if publishable), number of employees and contact information. In many cases, the listings also provide information regarding the company’s change in revenue from 2010-2011, as well as a projection for 2011-2012. We’ve also included a general overview of each company’s business, along with any additional information provided by company sources.

To compile the ASI Top 25, we sent a survey to subscribers requesting information such as annual revenue, number of employees, etc. (We’d like to say a special “thank you” to all of those who took the time to complete the survey!) We then combined the results of that survey with additional details from company websites, annual reports, press releases and company contacts to finalize the rankings.
 
 In addition, the digital and online editions of the ASI Top 25 include an infographic that visually highlights details such as revenue levels, employee stats and a regional breakdown of the companies included the ranking. The ASI Top 25 Fast Facts infographic provides a snapshot reference point for readers who need quick access to specific details from the list.
 
Our staff made every effort to include the industry’s top companies in the ranking. If you believe your company should be included, please contact Teresa McPherson at mcphersont@bnpmedia.com or (734) 332-0541.
