This financial and operational data allow us to highlight the health of your business with comparative data from more than 200 competing facilities.

Our clients turn to us for a fresh and honest perspective. Our recommendations are future-focused, candid, and always backed by facts. Clients gain foresight and confidence to make the best decisions in every situation. The weight of change doesn’t feel quite as heavy with a trusted advisor in your corner.

“We combine the insights of our plastics industry benchmarking study with decades of experience serving plastics manufacturers to offer a trusted perspective on growth opportunities and business model risks,” said Damitha Bandara, plastics assurance partner. “We look out for our clients and give them honest, practical counsel.”

Our clients say

We are a fairly data-driven metrics-oriented organization and have historically compared our 6 operations against each other internally. Participation in the North American Plastics Industry Survey (NAPIS) has taken benchmarking to the next level giving us a broad, valid comparative universe. Operationally we use the NAPIS data for enhancing the output and efficiency of our assets and goal setting. Commercially we reference the information to test the validity of “target pricing” that is frequently presented to our sales assets. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, NAPIS data has become part of our acquisition toolbox during the initial assessment and operational due diligence phases of the process. Candidly our entire management looks forward to the NAPIS survey.
