Seventeen PA Companies Make the 2015 Fortune 500

ComcastEvery year, businesses anticipate the annual list of Fortune Magazine’s “Fortune 500”.

In honor of the release of the 2015 list, we decided to present every Pennsylvania-based corporation that made the top 500 (the website includes 1,000, but hey, they don’t call it the “Fortune 1,000”).

According to Fortune, “companies are ranked by total revenues for their respective fiscal years”.

Pittsburgh hosts the most companies with five while Philadelphia contains three and King of Prussia two.

Each Keystone State business is included below. Along with their ranking, we’ve included their 2014 rank, the city where they’re headquartered, what industry they’re in, and finally the company’s’ revenues and profits compared to last year.
