Shortages of raw materials and other early supply chain components have hit manufacturers of every stripe—from resins to fiberglass, PVC, and more. Not to mention the many unexpected market disruptions from COVID-19 to the Texas ice storms to the Suez Canal.
This can be nerve-wracking when you’ve got tight deadlines to meet on your construction project and nowhere to turn.
That’s why we’re proud to report that none of our customers have experienced delays or shortages, even in the midst of industry-wide disruption.
In an effort to help our customers plan and succeed, we want to take a moment to answer a few pressing questions and assure you that we’re doing everything we can to keep our production—and your projects—moving forward.
Are fiberglass showers going to be in short supply next?
Perhaps you’ve noticed that it’s been tough to get PVC piping for a recent development project. You may be wondering: What about all those fiberglass shower units we need? Are those next? The reality is that it’s likely many of your typical vendors are having a hard time finding materials.
The majority of fiberglass shower manufacturers have had to reduce production volume or cut it off entirely while they work to resolve their sourcing issues. It took a while, but the market caught up with fiberglass, which has recently encountered the same kind of supply/demand shortages that affected semiconductors in 2020. Sadly, some firms in the fiberglass and resin industries have had to resort to layoffs. This puts a return to supply chain capacity in the immediate future even further in doubt.
Will my EverFab orders be delayed or short?
