Correction: In the August issue of Oregon Business, the print version of Oregon's Public Companies list inadvertently omitted PW Eagle, which moved its headquarters in Eugene in 2004 and is ranked no. 16 in this Web version of the list.  As a result companies ranked 17-61 in the printed version have all moved down one rank.
