        Welcome to Crain's Fast 50, a dive into Michigan's biggest corporate growth stories. This year's entry reflects the big economic trends of the past few years: a resurgent automotive industry, bouncebacks in real estate and construction, and a raft of M&A.


        The overall ranking is based on a combination ranking of the dollar change in revenue from 2012 to 2015, and the percentage change in revenue from 2012 to 2015.
