2021 Year in Review

After conquering the various ‘lockdown’ criteria that we faced during the previous year, 2021 brought with it new challenges with the raw material crisis. This raw material price inflation was caused by a change in the supply and demand balance due to Covid-19, manufacturing plant reductions, or global supply chain limitations. In addition to these issues, a serious incident in a raw material factory in Korea led to a global shortage of one of the key substances used to produce epoxy resins.
Logistical challenges with Brexit documentation within ports and of course the well communicated driver shortage all added to the obstacles that were overcome.
