Jumping 44 places, Avnet ranked No. 430 on the 2015 Fortune Global 500 list of the world's largest corporations. The ranking is based on Avnet's $27.5 billion in revenue in FY14; Avnet ranked No. 474 last year and remains the only Phoenix, Ariz., USA-headquartered company named to the list.

"Avnet's rise on the Fortune Global 500 directly reflects the dedication of our employees in accelerating the success of our customers around the world," says Rick Hamada, Avnet's CEO.
