Worldwide supply problem with semiconductors and raw materials
Harms & Wende took action at an early stage and took precautions through long-term advance planning, framework agreements with partners and suppliers, and standardized modules for the most important product series. Despite all the measures we have implemented, we would like to point out that delivery times may be longer than you have been used to due to supply difficulties. I’m sure you’ve also heard about the delivery problems and delays with semiconductors and raw materials. Supply chains are not running as smoothly as usual and this may also have an impact on Harms & Wende.
Thanks to long-term framework agreements and advance planning, good provisions were made in good time; nevertheless, procurement difficulties have arisen in some cases with previous standard components.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting shortage of raw material suppliers, delivery incapacities at suppliers and even major restrictions in the supply chains, there are sometimes unscheduled delays and outages. In individual cases, this can lead to the extended delivery times mentioned above.
Our materials management department is working flat out to ensure delivery capabilities.
In order to minimize the impact on you, we ask you to communicate planned projects and orders at an early stage or to place them already, even if the delivery dates are far in the future. We are also happy to discuss future projects together to identify any bottlenecks.
We ask for your understanding and thank you for the good cooperation.
