April 5th, 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Description
The past two years have thrown out all of the normal assumptions regarding what to expect in the ‎door and access systems industry. The ongoing trend of price increases and changing lead times ‎have impacted manufacturers and dealers alike. Join a panel of IDA members, both Suppliers ‎and Dealers, in an open discussion regarding the unprecedented price increases. Here we will ‎examine from the manufacturers perspective the flow of: ‎
•    General operations ‎
•    PO for semi-finished raw materials
•    All the industries at are impacted by the PO ‎
•    Labor Markets ‎

We will also examine the Dealer Side on how those manufacturing changes and challenges ‎affect the dealer with: ‎
•    Changes in dealers managing stocks and orders. ‎
•    How not passing along increases to the end user can compound through your dealership ‎and kill profitability. ‎
