Dell Inc. earned the No. 33 spot on this yearâ€™s Fortune 500 list. The Round Rock computer maker was one of only three Central Texas companies that made this yearâ€™s list.
Dellâ€™s (Nasdaq: DELL) 2008 revenue totaled $61 billionâ€”virtually unchanged from 2007. The companyâ€™s rank improved one place, from No. 34 on last yearâ€™s list.
Fortune said that ever since founder Michael Dell returned to the helm of his company in 2007, Dell has launched a series of initiatives to help it compete. But the results of those efforts have been mixed.
Whole Foods Market Inc. (Nasdaq: WFMI) also made the cut again this year, ranking 324th, a significant improvement from its 369th place position on last yearâ€™s list. Whole Foodsâ€™ revenue of just under $8 billion is a 20 percent improvement from 2007.
The only other local company on this yearâ€™s list of the top 500 was Freescale Semiconductor Inc., which ranked 457th. Freescale did not rank on last yearâ€™s list.
Texas as a state now boasts of having the most Fortune 500 companies within its state boundaries. The Lone Star state has 64 companies in the Top 500, beating California and New York, which had 51 and 56 companies on the Fortune 500 list, respectively.
