Virginia has 21 companies on the Fortune 500 this year, the same number as last year.

But that doesn’t mean the Virginia lineup is unchanged.

Fortune magazine annually ranks the nation’s largest publicly traded companies based on their revenue.

New to the Fortune list this year is Herndon-based Beacon Roofing Supply.

The company posted $6.4 billion in revenue last year, an increase of 46.6% from 2017.

That boost in revenue landed Beacon the No. 464 spot on the Fortune list.

Beacon becomes the 10th Fortune 500 company based in Fairfax County.

While Beacon has joined the group of Virginia companies on the Fortune list, another has departed.

Advance Auto Parts, founded by Arthur Taubman in Roanoke in 1932, moved its headquarters to Raleigh, N.C., last year

The company ranked No. 317 on the Fortune list last year. It was the 13th largest publicly traded company in Virginia.

This year, as a North Carolina company, Advance was ranked 326th.

A similar shift will take place when Norfolk Southern moves its headquarters to Atlanta, a decision announced late last year.

One Fairfax County-based company, DXC Technology, rose from No. 374 on the Fortune list last year to No. 122 in this year's ranking.

The company, founded in a 2016 merger, saw its revenue rise 222,8% last year to reach $24.6 billion. 

Overall, 13 of Virginia’s Fortune 500 companies are based in Northern Virginia, seven are in the Richmond area, and three are in Hampton Roads.
