Happy Monday everyone! It’s been a while folks, but we wanted to get some current information out to everyone before year end. Availability on most products in our region has been limited for some 8 weeks now and pushed pricing back up across the board. The key factors impacting it have been increasing demand, limited import supply due to container shipping costs and delays, mill production staff shortages and closures for maintenance, and most recently southern plywood mills have gone off the market with some stating mid-January as their next available shipping.
If you need anything between now and early January, we encourage you to contact our team asap to get an order scheduled. We have worked to maintain stocking levels, and we at least have alternates if not your preferred products to keep your operation going. Please take the holidays into consideration when placing new orders and expect delays in either production or shipping due to staffing and trucking limitations.
Andrew Harris – Sales and Operations Director
We hope that everyone enjoys the holidays with your loved ones, and we look forward to another year serving you in 2022! Remember that everyone’s got a Cousin Eddie, and if you can’t think of one in your family, it’s probably you. Happy holidays!
