As published in this brief, the current supply chain difficulties that are causing chaos at ports, warehouses, and retailers may last longer than expected.
In the meantime, our team is dedicated to improving and minimizing the impact on our customers and their businesses. Here are some of the steps we are taking to improve our performance at C.L. Smith & HAZPlus.
We are investing in Lyons Blow Molding, our manufacturing division of C.L. Smith. By adding an additional line and robotics, we are able to maximize the output for our customers. Likewise, we have increased wages for our plant personnel to reduce the potential for future labor shortages.
Working in tandem with our sister companies at Novvia Group (Inmark, Silver Spur, Container Supply, Fox Valley Containers, Acepac, Rhino Container, & Novvia Group Canada), to leverage our buying power as a national packaging distributor. Purchasing at this scale ensures competitive pricing as well as access to a larger network of suppliers.
How we can work together during this difficult time.
Work closely with your packaging consultant and customer care representative. As always, we are here to help! Contact us with your questions.
It goes without saying that timing is one of the greatest supply chain difficulties. Be sure to place orders as soon as possible to combat longer lead times in production, manufacturing, and logistics.
Focus on the Future
Keep in mind, this will not last forever. We remain in this together and are here to support you.
