Equipment Lead Times – Prepare Now

As our economy hits the restart button, demand for goods is increasing at a dramatic pace going into the Summer of 2021. Low production levels in 2020 (due to the pandemic), plus various global factors in early 2021 have resulted in the perfect storm. We were already seeing hardware shortages going into the Spring and it has steadily been getting worse.

What does this mean to the average business owner? Procurement of electronic hardware is going to become increasingly difficult as we move into the 2nd half of the year. Items that would normally have a 1-2 week lead time have changed from weeks to months. In some cases, distribution outlets are reporting new stock will not be arriving until the Fall.

If you are considering new hardware, expansions or refreshing hardware within your existing environment in 2021, we strongly recommend taking the current delays into consideration. Getting projects in progress now may save you headaches with growing delays later in the year.
