Ten Missouri Companies Included in 2012 Fortune 500

The top-ranked Missouri company, Express Scripts, fell five places to 60th, but should vault much higher next year when its acquisition of Medco Health Services will be included.

The state has ten companies on the list, down from 11 last year, but the dropout, Smurfit Stone Container, had already agreed to a buyout by the time last year’s list was published.

Nine of the companies are located in St. Louis. O’Reilly Automotive is headquartered in Springfield.

  • Express Scripts: 60th
  • Emerson Electric: 120th
  • Monsanto: 224th
  • Reinsurance Group of America: 289th
  • Peabody Energy: 316th
  • Ameren: 340th
  • Charter Communications: 351st
  • O’Reilly Automotive: 424th
  • Graybar Electric: 451st
  • Centene: 453rd
