Ergon, Yates climb in Forbes Magazine listing

Ergon and Yates Construction increased their latest ranking in Forbes Magazine's listing of America's Largest Private Companies in the November 24 issue. Ergon rose to number 115 after placing 180 in 2003, and Yates rose to 253 from 272.

The list includes U.S.-headquartered for-profit businesses that don't have widely held common stock, may have too few shareholders to be required to file with the Securities & Exchange Commission, or they may have common stock whose ownership is restricted to a small group, such as employees or family members. Excluded are firms with fewer than 100 employees, nonprofits that do not pay taxes, mutuals, cooperatives, auto dealerships and businesses with more than 50% of their sales from real estate.
