Will packaging capital expenditures be up in 2015?
Just early results so far, but the greater percentage of our respondents expect to spend the same or more this year on packaging equipment.

Robust packaging machinery sales often reflect a healthy economy, as companies move forward with new product introductions, automation upgrades or other projects. So what’s the outlook for this year?

Packaging Digest is conducting a survey to find out if capital expenditures will be up, down or flat—and why.
