How do you measure up to other processors?

Article-How do you measure up to other processors?

The 2009 North American Plastics Industry Study done by the plastics practice of the consulting firm Plante & Moran promises to be very informative, as it has been since 1995, and you are invited to participate. In return, you get a customized report comparing your company’s performance to the top quartile of processor companies in the industry—free. It’s easy and it’s confidential.

The processors survey (injection, compression, thermoforming, blow, and extrusion), which measures a company in such areas as strategy, finance, operations, marketing, and human resources, will be open for your participation through May 2009, and results will be available by the end of August 2009.

Participating companies have used previous editions of the survey to determine: What proven strategies are available to enhance productivity; what other molders are doing to maintain profitability; and how their cost structure compares with the rest of the industry.

You can participate in this year’s survey online at Plante & Moran’s secure website, or you can download the questionnaire in Excel format. Click here for more information or to register. [email protected]
