On this episode, we’ll be discussing the ongoing resin supply issues with Steve Wetzel of Interplastic, and Dirk De Vuyst of IMI. 

Steve will be discussing the cause of resin supply shortages. As many know, the February freeze in Texas triggered mass blackouts and led to chemical plant shutdowns that are disrupting supply chains, causing a shortage of raw materials.

Dirk will be sharing some proactive strategies manufacturing members can implement during these challenging times. These include the 4 P’s – Protecting current customers, Pricing based on new costing, Procuring materials ahead of time, and Producing efficiently.
