Welcome to another year of Walls & Ceilings’ annual round-up of the leading contractors in the country. As in past years, the Top 50 Contractors list brings together the industry’s most progressive and resourceful subcontractors.

As we’ve done for the past decade, contractors submitted their information via our W&C Top 50 submission page. This gave our contractors the opportunity to tell us their story and why they feel they are among the best. It is always excellent to hear from all the different and varying voices in our industry.

In our professional opinion, all of these 50 contractors have displayed numerous skillsets that warrant them to be among the best. We encourage W&C readers to visit these company’s websites and you’ll see portfolios that showcase these subcontractors’ work and their stories. What makes these companies successful is their collective desire to stay progressive, ambitious and quality-focused. That means employing new technology, actively looking for new products, competitive employment opportunities, safety departments and so much more. All in all, their talents have sustained their business model and made them industry leaders.

“The submissions have been overwhelming,” says Jill Bloom, the magazine’s group publisher. “The criteria to determine who makes the list is a lot of work but very rewarding. Each year, we learn more and more about our contractor readership and what matters to each of these companies. This year we not only looked at revenue but wanted to see what the contractors had to say about company investment, staff size, projects and more. It’s always hard to state ‘who is the best’ but for 2023 we feel this is an outstanding group. We’re proud of everyone that made this roster but also those that did not. There are loads of companies doing quality work.”

Some of the Top 50 contractors reflect companies that have been around for decades, while some are still in their early years. Yet, many of these have spoken to us of their plans for growth and to create some type of legacy.

In short, the turn-out of submissions this year was again very strong.

It pleases us to see all the submissions and we thank everyone that wanted to be a part of this annual feature. We anticipate that the number of entrants will continue to climb for next year and we look forward to reading and accepting all your submissions.

Walls &Ceilings congratulates this year’s Top 50 winners.
