METTAWA -- Grainger was again named to Fortune's annual list of "World's Most Admired Companies" in 2019.
Among competitors in the Wholesalers: Diversified category, Grainger ranked No. 1 for the sixth consecutive year.
Fortune's "World's Most Admired Companies" list is a report card on corporate reputations. To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, the survey asked approximately 3,750 executives, directors and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, such as investment value, quality of management and products, social responsibility and ability to attract talent.
"Our 25,000 team members around the world strive to make a real difference with our customers and communities, and our sustained top spot on this ranking demonstrates our actions leave a positive -- and lasting -- impression."
