More Challenges for Grease
As many in the industry are likely aware, the supply of grease has been extraordinarily tight after the June 14, 2021 explosion and fire destroyed the Chemtool grease plant. Now adding to the challenges of constrained supply, marketers and some retailers are getting word that the leading manufacture the tube cartridges used to package grease is allocating supply.
As a result, some marketers and retailers are now hearing that the supply of grease in cartridges will be limited for about three months and orders for some greases will be limited to 25% of historical demand.
What supplier is this? It surely can’t be Biederman with their 8 month fulfillment time.
