In today's plastics industry, it's crucial for companies to have solid financial and competitive benchmarking data to support their strategies as well as to proactively manage relationships with customers, suppliers, lenders, and investors.
Plante Moran's annual North American Plastics Industry Study examines the best practices and characteristics that shape the success of North American plastics processors (Injection / Compression / Thermoforming / Blow / Extrusion).
Substantially streamlined in 2017
This year, the survey is changing. The length of the questionnaire has been reduced by over 60 percent and now focuses on core data regarding strategy, marketing, operations, organizational design, and financial performance. However, to continue addressing the needs of the industry, we are creating several focused surveys that center on best practices, which will be released throughout the year. Only the companies that participate in the North American Plastics Industry Study will be allowed to participate in these focused surveys, as that will allow better correlation between company data and identifying which practices impact performance.
For the completion of the North American Plastics Industry Study, each participant receives an individually tailored report showing direct comparisons of their performance against their peers for key measures.
