This is Blazer from Pentagon Safety Equipment. Regularly, customers and friends ask me, when will supply chains return to normal? We’re all sick and tired of hearing about continued disruptions, COVID, interest rate increases, and worse case scenario situations.
I’ve got some good news and I’ve got some bad news. This is the new normal. There will not be a return to pre-pandemic normal for global supply chains. While that might sound scary for some, it is an opportunity for us to reassess and improve our respective businesses and operations. Until COVID, most businesses rarely assessed their supply chain holistically. Now, it is becoming common practice for many businesses.
At Pentagon Safety, we recognize the importance of supply chain diversification which is why all of our gloves are produced outside of China and we are in the process of looking to manufacture domestically in the US. While the news of the new lockdowns in China may scare some, it does not scare us. We are prepared and you can be too.
In this global supply chain, we are all connected, but we need to reassess risk on a regular basis. Reach out to us today to see how you can better ensure reliability of your safety and PPE supply chain.
