Plan Now: Solutions to Extended Lead Times & Rising Costs

Posted May 14, 2021

Many industries are experiencing supply chain challenges from the unprecedented events of the last year; and unfortunately, our industry is also experiencing extended lead times and cost increases.  The major industry suppliers are communicating extended lead times on electronic hardware, ribbons, and labels due to component and raw material shortages and increased demand.  In some instances, these lead time notices are three (3) to nine (9) months or longer.
