Participate in FBA’s Independent Sheet Plant Operating Ratio Survey

Don't miss your chance to participate in this year's Independent Sheet Plant Operating Ratio Survey. Keep in mind that

only survey participants are eligible to receive survey results.

Independent sheet plant operators, who participated in the past, find this survey to be of high value in comparing costs and identifying areas for improved competitive advantage.

Compiled data will be for the period ending December 31, 2020 or the most recent fiscal (12-month period) year. Also, the results will be arranged by range of sales dollars at the top of the column, in order to provide an understanding of participating companies’ size.  In addition, we ask you to provide total dollar sales figures for the previous five-year period (2016-2020) which will be presented in an addendum report to the Sheet Plant Operating Ratio Survey.
