This week Plastics News published its annual ranking of North American rotational molders. Here is a peek behind the data.
This year we're ranking 126 firms, with rotational molding sales of $2.34 billion. That's on par with last year's numbers.
One big change is that we've combined the listings for large tank rotomolders Norwesco Inc. and Snyder Industries Inc., which share common ownership. Speaking of tanks, HDPE prices were down 10 percent, contributing to the commodity tank business coming in lower for this year's report.
The average sales per company did increase a half percent, our research shows this is mostly due to new products. Compared to fiscal year 2010, that is a 25.7 percent increase. Outdoor toys sales and the boating industry saw high single digit growth in 2015.
