ANSYS, Inc. Between their Fluent and CFX solvers, ANSYS controls something like half of the commercial CFD market.. Both of the solvers come as integrated packages with grid generation and post-processing. CFX is now integrated into the ANSYS Workbench, which allows you to take advantage of its vast structural analysis capability as well. By reputation, CFX has traditionally been focused on turbomachinery applications, while Fluent is seen as a more general code.

While I have not heard Fluent being described as the "best" solver very often, it is an extremely versatile code that has probably been applied with success to more classes of flow than any other. Likewise, the grid generation and post-processing applications are not, by themselves, necessarily best-of-class. Fluent's great strength is that they provide reasonably powerful tools in a tightly integrated package. This allows engineers in a wide variety of industries who are not "CFD practitioners" per se to run a CFD analysis of the problems relevant to them.
