It’s all over the news: there are shortages of everything due to the pandemic. But that doesn’t mean that the world isn’t producing goods. Most shortages involve smaller components that you may not realize are in many of the things you buy. For instance, one of the problems with newer vehicles is a diminished supply of the computer chips; the reason for a shortage of paint colors is that paint manufacturers require numerous chemicals to make one product, and when just one of the chemicals is in short supply, that particular paint color cannot be created. There are numerous reasons for the hiccups in the supply chains, and when it comes to getting the products you need for your business you might find that your particular components are as difficult to find as toilet paper was at the beginning of the pandemic. It is believed that these shortages will extend well into the next year, and possibly even beyond. So, if you have parts and components or a design concept, and you’ve found it difficult to get what you need, remember the professional design/prototype/production experts at NW Industries are ready to help.
The other component to the shortages is that the prices for products and the cost and wait times to receive those products has grown exponentially. Products are more difficult to get and, because material costs have risen, it’s getting costlier to build those products.
Design and prototype are components to quality manufacturing, and are the cornerstones to precision and efficiency. Everything relies on customer satisfaction, and NW Industries is committed to working with you as a teammate.
