May 3, 2021 Status:
Bloomsburg Campuses: GREEN
Holland Campus: RED
Summary: All plants are operational, although production at our Holland facility (ALLEN® brand) has been impacted by production staffing shortages and specific raw material issues. In Bloomsburg (KYDEX® brand), staffing has not impacted lead times.
Employees: We continue to manage any positive COVID-19 cases to keep our employees safe and to support our customers. There has been impact in our Holland facility due to several positive COVID-19 cases and quarantine due to contact tracing. All on-site personnel are wearing masks and following other best-practice protocols from the CDC and state guidelines.
Customers: Please contact our Customer Collaboration Team for specifics related to your order. If there are any issues with your order, Customer Collaboration will reach out proactively.
Suppliers: As the US petrochemical industry works its' way past the February freeze in Texas and other issues, we are experiencing sporadic shortages and extended lead times for some materials. The ABS market has been incredibly tight, with long lead times and partial/late deliveries. We are also attempting to manage through a global polycarbonate (PC) shortage that is affecting a few of our products. PVC and some additives are also in tight supply, but we expect to manage through those issues without any impact to production. If there are any issues with your order, Customer Collaboration will reach out proactively.
Shipping: Shipping is operating normally at this time. Our dedicated trucks for the Holland, MI facility are fully operational. The worldwide imbalance of shipping containers has not had any impact on our ability to export. Customer Collaboration will contact you in the event of any impact to your delivery.
Management: The Senior Management Team continues to meet regularly to monitor the situation and to update our plans as needed.
Please reach out to your SEKISUI KYDEX contact if you have any questions.
