Current Product Market Challenges

March 18, 2021

As the economy restarts from the Covid-19 episode, no all segments are back to normal. This is resulting in some limitations from vendors which are impacting delivery schedules, increased costs and limitations on some published options. Some reported causes are slow delivery on aluminum extrusions, capacity increases slow to come online due to raw material or manpower limitations, or a surge of demand exceeding the normal historical flow.

Depending on the manufacturer, we do not expect any major changes in conditions for some months and expect that upsets in projected lead times will continue until at least late fall.

We recommend that you consult us for specifics depending on your needs, and have available your projected schedule of when products are needed so we can better assist you with current lead times and options based on the products involved.
