PACCAR has again earned the distinction of being selected by Industry Week magazine as one of the 50 best manufacturing companies in the United States. To select the top 50 manufacturing companies, Industry Week evaluated a company’s three-year performance measures including revenue growth, profit margin, asset turnover, inventory turns, return on assets and return on equity. Performance for the most recent year was weighted more heavily in the analysis. PACCAR delivered record net income of $1.13 billion on revenues of $14 billion in 2005.
