Combining Integrity with Expertise to Deliver Independent Insight on the Packaging Industry

Independent Consulting Services

Investment and Market Research

Cranial Capital, Inc. is consistently engaged in projects that involve the research of companies and the markets of packaging. We evaluate companies based on: management, markets served, competitive position, technology and various financial criterion. In many cases, investors and packaging companies evaluating growth strategies will ask Cranial Capital, Inc. to provide and in-depth, yet concise, review of a packaging market. We try to approach the analysis from 35,000 feet right down to the retail shelf. Unlike other similar publications, we don’t believe “bigger is better” and more importantly, we frown upon the interpretation of data that drives “numbers that might have been and numbers that might be!”
