Adding fuel to the fire...
As well as the supply chain problems affecting lead times for installations, we now also have the fuel supply disruption to contend with, making it difficult for Installers to get to their customer’s properties to fit their products when they do finally arrive.
How long will this situation continue before it mutates into another catastrophe affecting the country?
There’s an old saying in business that you must speculate to accumulate. Well, in my opinion it is now beneficial to end the “just in time” culture of recent years in order to ensure we safeguard our industry moving forward.
This means all of our Trusted Installers need to apply pressure on their suppliers to allow us to sustain the industry growth we have enjoyed over the last twelve months.
