The report is part of an ongoing effort to grow the already rich resources available to rigid box members, and is designed to help members determine how each company compares to the group in terms of machine hour rates, stock board inventories, waste generation, and make-ready times. Other initiatives for PPC rigid box members include a specialized committee, free tabletops at the biannual conferences, biannual networking summits, public promotion of the benefits of rigid boxes, and much more.
"Establishing a benchmarking program for rigid box converters enhances our current robust value proposition," noted Ben Markens, President of PPC. "We look forward to expanding upon this key survey in the months to come and welcome the participation of all rigid box manufacturers."
Now in its 84th year, PPC is the leading industry association serving suppliers and converters of all forms of paperboard packaging. PPC works to grow, promote, and protect the paperboard packaging industry while providing its members with resources and tools to compete effectively and successfully in the marketplace.
