The Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, Intl. (FMA) encourages industry executives to participate in the 2011 Financial Ratios and Operational Benchmarking Survey that will provide comprehensive data for company owners and managers in the metal forming and fabricating industry.
The survey combines financial ratio details with additional operational data used to determine a company’s financial health. Survey results will allow comparisons of liquidity, profitability, asset management, operational benchmarking, value proposition and marketing effectiveness to other companies. Comparisons will be made based upon demographic similarities such as company size, sales volume, and type of company.
Executives can complete the survey online here: FMA 2011 Financial Ratios and Operational Benchmarking Survey. The deadline for survey completion is March 31, and survey results will be delivered electronically to participating companies in June.
“More company participation provides broader data and more valuable results,” said Jim Warren, director of education and member services with the FMA.
