Largest Companies in Portland Oregon Based on Employee Count - Part One Rows 2 - 21.

The top 20 employers in Portland, Oregon range from Daimler Trucks North America with 20,000 employees to Johnstone Supply company, with 1,998 employees. The full list is available in the attached spreadsheet. A pre-compiled list of the largest companies in Oregon by the number of employees was available here. This list was compiled based on those companies which were headquartered in Oregon. We then filtered out any companies not located in Portland itself, and any government or educational institutions to create a list of Portland's largest non education/government employers. For those with the data available, we included the company's estimated annual revenue provided here. Revenue data was obtained from the original list of the largest companies, along with searches of the D&B Hoovers and Owler databases.

We used the pre-compiled list used in the previous response to look for largest companies in Portland, OR and continued from there. We left out government and educational entities, as instructed. However, we could only identify 11 more companies from the list.

For the rest of the 9 companies, we generated a list of companies headquartered in Portland, OR using Owler. We used Portland's area codes (503 and 971) and an employee range of 500-1,500 employees to filter results on Owler, which returned a list of 21 companies. We sifted through these companies to identify companies that fit our criteria and were not already included in the list and identified 9 more companies and added them to the list.

Revenues have also been input into the spreadsheet for all companies except Oregonian Media Group, for which the revenue could not be found even after an extensive search. Company websites and the sources used for finding revenues have also been input into the spreadsheet.

Largest Companies in Portland Oregon Based on Employee Count - Part Four Rows 62 - 81

Rows 62 to 81, columns A to D of the attached spreadsheet have been completed. To identify the companies provided, I first examined the approach taken to complete the previous part of the project (part three) and the company and employee count listed in row 61 (Nouvola with 56 employees). Next, I took a similar approach with how the companies in the previous request were identified by utilizing Owler to generate a list of companies. The parameters set were “USA,” “Oregon,” area codes “503” and “971” (which Portland shares with other cities in Oregon), and estimated employee count from “20 to 75.”
A list of 207 companies was generated when the above parameters were set. 20 companies with an estimated employee count from 46 (UbiVac) to 55 (Wild Friends Foods) were identified from this list. None of these companies are government or educational entities. Only Portland-based companies were identified as the original generated list contains companies based in cities which share the same area code with Portland such as Hillsboro and Keizer. The revenue provided on the spreadsheet were based on Owler’s estimated revenue for the companies.

Largest Companies in Portland Oregon Based on Employee Count - Part Five Rows 82 - 101

To complete the client's request, we first examined the approach taken and the companies selected by previous teams. We took a similar approach to searching for our companies, by utilizing Owler and Oregon Business to identify Portland-based companies, their employee count and their revenue. We initially focused our search on medium to small enterprises, assuming larger companies would have already been reported by previous teams. However, as we dove deeper into our research, we identified a few companies with large employee head count that had been previously overlooked so we included them. Please find below the final compilation of the companies selected, listed by descending employee count:

Blount 4,000
Fred Meyer 230
JLL 211
Lane Powell137
CBRE124
Shopkeep.com 52
Propeller 45
Point B 43
Boly Welch41

This information, alongside revenue and company website information, has been input into the client's spreadsheet.
