Jabil Circuit

JABIL HAS BEEN A big beneficiary of the outsourcing boom. From its humble start in the mid-1960s assembling circuit boards for electronics companies around Detroit, Jabil has grown into a leading contract manufacturer, employing roughly 50,000 workers in 19 countries. Since the tech bust in 2001, the St. Petersburg company has been on a major push to diversify beyond consumer electronics through acquisitions. Last year it bought the manufacturing operations of Varian, a maker of electronics for the aerospace and medical industries. The strategy is paying off: Profits soared 40% in 2005, to $253 million.
