Our rotational molding ranking comes out in this week's print issue of Plastics News. Let's take a look behind the numbers that make up this special report.
With combined sales of more than $2.6 billion for fiscal 2020, 107 firms made the ranking this year. That's up 3.5 percent vs. 2019. The average sales per company was $23.9 million, that's up 10 percent.
Proprietary molding makes up the biggest share among the molder, with $1.5 billion, or 60 percent of the total. Custom and captive come in at $605 million and $128 million, respectively.
You may have noticed that we have fewer firms ranked this year and we can look to consolidation for the reason. Tank Holding Corp., which tops our list with estimated $420 million in related sales, includes four acquired companies from our previous list: Dura-Cast Products Inc.; Rotational Molding Inc.; Rotational Molding of Utah and Spin Products Inc.
Myers Industries Inc., enters our list this year at No. 4, with $164.3 million, combining previously listed Ameri-Kart Corp. plus recently acquired Elkhart Plastics Inc. and Trilogy Plastics Inc.
Stern Assembly Inc. dba Stern Rotomolding and Vista Plastic Solutions Inc. each picked up some assets from previously ranked Acrylon Plastics Inc.
Pool accessories firm, SwimWays Corp. no longer does its own manufacturing, according to parent firm Spin Master Corp.'s annual report, it outsources to other rotational molders.
This year, we took a step outside our traditional ranking by pulling together a directory-only listing of 47 additional rotational molding companies, for which ranking data wasn't available. Special thanks to our research intern, Kelly Arndt, who was at the head of this effort. (You may have received a request for information from her.) These firms are listed in the print index and will be added to our data store download.
