There have been fundamental impacts to the Global Supply Chain which is affecting many industries, particularly the Manufacturing and Construction Sectors.
The past year has been extremely difficult for many people, with the global pandemic affecting every part of people’s lives. People have lost jobs, loved ones and much more.
The team at Sieger offer our condolences to those who have struggled through the pandemic and we hope that now there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Our employees have worked tirelessly through multiple lockdowns to ensure our business continues and we cannot thank everyone at Sieger enough for their hard work and all our customers for their understanding through this difficult time.
Although we have been able to continue as normal for the most part, the pandemic is starting to have a significant impact on the Global Supply Chain and customs from Brexit.
Coronavirus Pandemic and Brexit
How the Pandemic is Affecting the Global Supply Chain
There are some raw materials that are in short supply, and with the surge in construction projects with the restrictions easing, there is an extremely high demand for these already scarce materials.
Closures of factories and other businesses within the industry across the world contributes to backlogs for many businesses. Sieger and all businesses we work with are trying our best to not let this impact our lead times, without sacrificing quality.
Impact on Customs from Brexit
Brexit has led to increased checks and additional cost when importing from outside of the UK. Although Sieger manufactures our own aluminium glazing systems in the UK, some materials are imported from the continent.
Between the pandemic and slower release times for cargo stopped at the border, this can occasionally cause delays on our lead times.
We understand that increased lead times and uncertainty on timelines can be inconvenient and frustrating, but we hope you understand that this is something that is impacting many businesses across the manufacturing and construction industry.
Sieger is committed to offering our customers a smooth and stress-free experience, with the highest quality aluminium glazing systems. Please be assured that we will always do our best to avoid delays and take into account the state of the Global Supply Chain and Brexit.
Slight delays may occur due to production, logistics and customs. If there are any delays or issues, we will update you as soon as possible to ensure this does not impact other parts of your project.
Thank you to all our customers who we have worked with and to all our future customers for your understanding and for allowing our systems to help you build such stunning projects.
