MAPP Releases 2019 Wage and Salary Report

Indianapolis, IN – The Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP) recently released its 2019 Wage and Salary Report. For the seventeenth year, MAPP conducted this keystone study that analyzes information on over 55 job titles specific to the plastics industry, as well as additional operational benchmarks.

The 2019 report covers job titles in multiple areas of a plastics business including, but not limited to: administration, technical, operations, and management. Participants in this survey included over 200 US plastics manufacturing companies who reported wage and salary information on employees in current job positions. MAPP’s Wage and Salary Report has evolved each year to encompass new job titles, as well as

important industry and business trends within the plastics industry. This report remains one of the very few compensation reports dedicated exclusively to the plastics manufacturing industry.

The 2019 report contains comprehensive analyses on nearly 60 different job classifications from

plastics processing facilities across the United States. The data in this report represents nearly

47,500 full-time and part-time employees across 27 states.

“Especially at this time of year, companies need accurate and comprehensive data to ensure they make informed and data-driven decisions in regard to compensation packages and payroll budgeting. This report allows companies across the United States of all sizes to benchmark positions and determine competitive market salaries to attract and retain talent.” said Ashley Turrell, MAPP’s membership and analytics director.
