Koch Industries, one of the largest privately held firms in the world, unsurprisingly demurs on the specifics of its businesses. Koch Industries won’t even disclose its revenue in its own literature and merely cites an estimate by Forbes (up to $100 billion) without confirming or denying the figure. It is interesting that a company of that size with so many well-known brands (including Dixie, Lycra and Stainmaster) and high-profile conservative sibling executives (Chairman and Chief Executive Charles G. Koch and executive vice president David H. Koch) operates with such opaqueness.
