Wage and Benefit Survey

IFAI is conducting a wage and benefit survey of industry manufacturers. For the first time since 1999, the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) is conducting a wage and benefit survey of end-product manufacturers in the specialty fabrics industry. Specialty fabrics end-product manufacturers are invited to complete the confidential survey online at www.ifai.com beginning Dec. 1, 2003. The survey also will be distributed with the January 2004 issue of the Industrial Fabric Products Review. Survey questions will gather data on company salaries, benefits and policies. Participants who complete the survey by the Feb. 27, 2004 deadline will receive a 25 percent discount on the price of the complete study results. All survey participants will be eligible for drawings for a free one-year membership to IFAI and a free registration to IFAI Expo 2004. The survey will focus on end-product manufacturers who do business in areas such as awnings, athletic products, banners, boat covers, inflatable recreational products, safety and protective products, signs, tarps, tents and truck covers. Data from the survey will be compiled and analyzed by product category, geographic region and company size. The published study, which will be available through the IFAI Bookstore in March 2004, will enable businesses to determine how they compare to others in the industry. IFAI 2004 Wage and Benefit surveys will be kept confidential. The published study will contain only summary information; no specific company information will be included. IFAI is a not-for-profit trade association whose member companies represent the international specialty fabrics marketplace. For more information, or to request a copy of the Wage and Benefit Survey, contact Robin Simoson, IFAI Market Research Manager, at +(1) 651/225-6946; e-mail rmsimoson@ifai.com.
