Last year proved transitional for regional industry members, with many of its Top Specialty Contractors mired in slow to negative growth. This year should be more telling as to how fully they are participating in a nascent Midwest recovery, as well as the extent to which labor shortages and other issues are compomising their performance.

What follows is an alphabetical listing of the region's Top 65 Specialty Contractors, as measured by firm revenues last year. Firms will be listed by rank and revenue in Midwest's Sept. 28 edition.
