The FPA Operating Cost/Ratios Report is available only to FPA converter members that participated in the survey. The 2015 Report is based on responses from 45 percent of FPA converter members. The Report is an annual benchmark by which converters can compare their performance against results from peers detailed in the Report.
The Report presents data in a way that allows participating companies to view their performance in terms of profitability, materials and key operating statistics.
Among the findings in the 2015 Report:
- Net sales less materials costs rose slightly when 2015 data is compared to year-earlier data. However, the figure is comparable with long-term trends.
- According to the survey of FPA converter members, net profit for flexible packaging converters reached 6.9 percent in 2015. The figure is net profit before tax as a percent of net sales. The year-earlier number from 2014 was 5.8 percent.
The Report also provides detailed long-term comparisons for the 2011-2015 time frame. It includes data on net sales per employee, inventory turnover, labor costs, waste and environmental costs.
