SEKISUI KYDEX Official Response to COVID-19 and Recent Supply Issues

As of June 28, 2021, Pennsylvania and Michigan have lifted all COVID-19 restrictions and we have returned to normal operations at all campuses. We thank our teams for their commitment to keeping our campuses safe, healthy, and clean over the past year. Effective immediately, this will be the final SITREP from SEKISUI KYDEX and this page will be closed effective July 6, 2021.

June 28, 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.  All non-vaccinated employees continue to wear masks and follow 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 U.S. petrochemical industry works its' way past the impact of Winter Storm Uri and responds to a strong U.S. economic recovery, 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 managing 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, although we continue to see increases in freight costs and tight availability. 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.   

Thank you,  

SEKISUI KYDEX Management Team
