Supply and demand – it’s time to change our ways
There has been a significant change in the supply and demand for building materials recently. The economic crisis has made us all tighten our belts, but for merchants, keeping their heads above water has meant stock control is under particular scrutiny.
If merchants can keep their product availability high with less stock, there’s less financial pressure. However, this is a big “if” and it puts a lot of pressure on logistics. Manufacturers and contractors alike now need to change their mindset, which is why Alumasc is working hard to improve lead times on materials.
I took the additional responsibility of Alumasc’s rainwater & drainage teams in the summer of 2010. Over the past three years I’ve seen rapid changes in the supply and demand chain. Having an established relationship with merchants and contractors simply isn’t enough nowadays; we all have to be more financially aware, while ultimately putting customers at the forefront of our business.
