Burlington, VT (PRWEB) April 3, 2008

Manufacturing Market Insider, a newsletter specializing in the EMS (electronics manufacturing services) industry, has released its annual MMI Top 50 list of the world’s largest EMS providers. For the fourth straight year, Top 50 growth exceeded 15% with a 2007 increase of 16.7%. Top 50 sales in 2007 totaled $ 141.3 billion, a new high.

“The Top 50 accounted for about 80% of EMS industry revenue last year. As such, the Top 50 can be used as a proxy for the industry,” said John Tuck, editor and publisher of Manufacturing Market Insider (

MMI Top 50 providers were ranked based on 2007 sales in U.S. dollars. In order, the top ten were Hon Hai, Flextronics, Jabil Circuit, Sanmina-SCI, Celestica, Elcoteq, Kinpo Electronics/Cal-Comp Electronics, Benchmark Electronics, Venture and USI (Universal Scientific Industrial). A top-ten ranking required $ 1.98 billion in revenue.

In addition to ranking providers by 2007 sales, MMI Top 50 listings include sales growth, previous rank, number of employees, number of plants, facility space, space in low-cost regions, number of SMT lines and customer data. This special section was published in the March 2008 edition of MMI.

To make the Top 50, providers needed a minimum of $ 229 million in sales for 2007. The cutoff point increased by $ 16 million from the year before.
