Welcome to the United States of giant corporations.
This map from Broadviewnet.com shows the where some of the country’s largest companies are headquartered by state. Using data from Hoover’s, Broadview searched through each state’s list of companies and found the company with the largest revenue in the last fiscal year.
This is based on revenue, not employment or profits. We can see that Koch INdustries is really big in Kansas.
That Boeing is big in Illinois and Costco is the largest in Washington.
And high tech companies are nowhere to be seen.
