The NPCA 2017 Precast Industry Benchmarking Report charts a 5 percent growth rate for producers last year, as shipments in the United States and Canada climbed to an estimated $18.2 billion from $17.3 billion in 2015. The 129-page document reflects 2016 precast, precast/prestressed and concrete pipe production data from 63 companies operating 168 plants.

Along with shipment figures, the NPCA Benchmarking Report features data on salary and benefits and compares high-profit companies to the total sample. Graphs, charts and infographics offer data that precasters can use for strategic planning and to compare their own company results with the rest of the industry. The report is free to producers participating in the annual benchmarking survey, and available in pdf or hard copy versions for NPCA members ($350) and non-members ($550). — www.precast.org
