Here at the research desk at Plastics News, we work hard every year to expand our rankings and lists. In 2022, we added several dozen companies to our growing list of contacts to send our survey forms.
It almost can't be any easier to be included. Just complete and return the survey! Each of our rankings has its own form, and all of our listings are free of charge.
One popular question is if we have electronic submissions, and we do. You can submit your information directly into our system with the rankings links found on each listing's page online. Just click "Not on the list?" and submit your data for future consideration.
For those already included, we ask for updates every year, so you can also reply to these email requests and follow the personalized links provided.
We also have PDF versions, which you can download from our website. Just save your changes and email to me at [email protected], or print and fax to 330-633-2205.
Prefer pen and ink? No worries, we'll still mail out the survey forms. This is our favorite method because it allows for notes in the margins!
Our rankings and lists are published throughout the year and again with a full collection yearbook as our last print issue each year — we call it The Book. This yearbook gives us the opportunity to polish up those same fiscal year versions and provide them all in one special issue. We also display our rankings and lists online with additional information, more than we can fit on the print pages.
As always you can contact me direct at [email protected] or 330-633-2192 for this or any other questions.
Plastics News currently reports on North American processing sales, but don't let that stop you from submitting your company's contact information. If we get enough responses, we may be able to generate a global directory, something we get asked for all the time.
