Today Plastics News published its annual ranking of North American rotational molders. Here are some interesting facts about the rotomolding sector:
This year we’re ranking 122 firms, with rotational molding sales of $2.138 billion. That’s down from 125 companies ranked last year. However, 2012 sales are up 5 percent from 2011. In 2011, rotational molding sales were $2.0225 billion. The increase is interesting as there are no new companies to our ranking this year.
We did, however, in our research, find that companies were buying more machines this year. Some 20 of our ranked companies increased their number of machines in 2012.
We would like to welcome back Ameri-Kart Corp. of Bristol, Ind., to our Top 10. Here’s a list of some of the faster growing companies in this year’s ranking.
Make sure to check out the full report in the August 26 print edition of Plastics News. We also sell our full ranking in the PN Store section of our website.
And thanks to Lisa Pyles, PN’s administrative editorial assistant, for this peek behind the rankings data.
