Six Orange County companies earned a place on this year's Fortune 500 list of America's largest corporations – one fewer than last year.

Santa Ana-based Ingram Micro took the top spot among the local firms included in the program, which ranks companies based on revenue figures. The tech distributor landed at No. 75, with $34.6 billion in revenue. Last year, Ingram Micro landed at No. 80.

Irvine-based Western Digital was the second in line, coming in at No. 251 with revenue of $9.8 billion. The company also moved up from last year's list; in 2010, the hard-drive manufacturer ranked No. 304.

Broadcom, also in Irvine, took spot No. 343, with revenue of $6.8 billion. The chipmaker's 2011 ranking represents an improvement over 2010, when the company landed at No. 460.

Other local firms include Irvine-based Spectrum Group International, a global trading and collectibles network (381); Newport Beach-based insurance firm Pacific Life (405); and Irvine-based pharmaceutical company Allergan (457). Santa Ana-based First American Corp., which came in at No. 361 last year, did not rank among the Fortune 500.

The No. 1 corporation was Arkansas-based Wal-Mart Stores, with revenue of $421.8 billion.
