TIPS
To find packaging companies, identify the NAICS code (see http://www.naics.com/search/), and then use it as the search term in various business databases.
 
There are many NAICS codes related to packaging, depending on the material used.
 
Databases that allow NAICS code searching include:
  • Business Source Premier - Put the letters "IC" before the code to generate a NAICS-based search, for example IC 322221. You will find articles related to the topic in trade publications and academic journals using BSP, as well as market research reports.
  • LexisNexis Academic - first choose "Companies," then "Dossier-Create a Company List" to generate a list of companies classed by the code.
  • Mergent Online - In addition to a NAICS search, Mergent allows you to search for companies by a Mergent Industry Code (MIC). Both NAICS and MIC searches are available from the main Mergent search screen. The MIC for "Containers & Packaging" is 8.1.3
