Abstract:
The state's top one hundred private companies are ranked. Very few high-tech industries made the list, with most being old-line industries like furniture and textile manufacturers, auto parts distributors, and food chains. The top six on the 2000 list are the same as on the 1999 list, although in a different order. Raleigh's General Parts, Inc., a distributor of replacement parts for vehicles, has headed the list since 1998.
