The Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. has opened up its survey of industry financial data to nonmember companies, hoping to make it a more useful benchmarking tool.
SPI's Financial and Operating Ratios Survey requests data about sales, profitability, employees, resin consumption and end markets, and information about on-time delivery and customer complaints, among other facts. This year, Washington-based SPI will make the general results of the survey free to nonmember companies that participate.
Previously, only member companies had been able to get free results. The deadline for completing the survey is April 30.
