Fortune 500 rank: 330

In 2007, Home Depot sold its industrial supply division HD Supply for $8.5 billion to a group of companies that included Bain Capital, the Carlyle Group, and Clayton Dublier and Rice. With the housing market slowly crawling to a recovery, HD Supply's fortunes rebounded, and it now has more than 600 outlets across the nation with 2012 sales climbing 14% year over year. Former parent company Home Depot still retains a 12.5% ownership and is now one of HD Supply's main customers, making up 4% of its sales.
