These companies achieved a Top 10 ranking in at least one of four key categories.

Every year, we identify the connector companies that most stand out in this ever-changing industry. It’s no easy task to keep up with the next big innovation — especially when that phenomenon is occurring across multiple markets. Yet every year, hundreds of companies demonstrate the flexibility and creativity needed to accomplish this very feat.

In our last article, we listed the top 10 companies in four areas: total sales, geographic region, products manufactured, and market served. Below, we analyze the sum of these lists to arrive at our final, overall top 10 supplier rankings.
