You Wait, You Lose: Getting Ahead of Supply Chain Disruptions

Crockett Facilities Services’ preventive maintenance programs saves you money.  Our licensed technicians identify and address repairs and replacements before they become emergencies, which is vital as our industry experiences production delays, transportation backlogs, and high inflation.

It’s simple. “You wait, you lose.” With current supply chain woes, delays in ordering decisions have an exponential effect on operation, cost, and lead time.  Our preventive maintenance programs are designed to minimize the cost impact to our customers through early detection of mechanical deficiencies.

Production Delays
Many manufacturers are experiencing labor shortages, leading to reduced capacity and longer lead times for equipment production. This has led to a shortage of critical components and raw materials, such as semiconductors, copper, aluminum, and steel, which are used to manufacture HVAC systems and other building maintenance systems.

In some cases, these shortages have caused manufacturers to slow down or even halt production, leading to delays in the delivery of finished products to customers.

Production delays have made it challenging to obtain new equipment or replacement parts, which means repairs may take longer than expected, resulting in extended downtime for critical systems.

Transportation Issues
Transportation delays have been caused by various factors, including congestion at ports, reduced capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions, and shortages of shipping containers. Furthermore, the shortage of shipping containers and the increased price of fuel have raised the cost of transportation.

The shortage of critical components and the increased cost of transportation has led to a sharp increase in overall costs, which have been passed on to consumers. This is causing a steady rise in prices for HVAC systems and other equipment.
