Chemours joins the list of the 500 largest businesses in the United States.

With more than $5.5 billion in revenue last year, Chemours ranked 482 on the list, released Wednesday morning by Fortune Magazine.

“This is a recognition of success and another bit of evidence that Chemours’ plan is succeeding,” said Jim Butkiewicz, chair of the University of Delaware’s Economics Department.

Chemours, which has about 1,000 workers in the state, is the third Delaware company to join the Fortune 500 list. Its former parent, DuPont, and Navient are also members.

“We’re so proud to see our name on this coveted list less than two years after becoming a public company and overcoming some real challenges at our start,” said Chemours CEO Mark Vergnano. “This honor was not given; it was earned. It is a testament to the flawless execution by our workforce of our five-point transformation plan.”
