(In reference To Availability of RESIDENTIAL & LANDSCAPE Equipment)
From Toro company:
Since last spring we have all been affected by the global pandemic and the changes it has brought about in our businesses and our daily lives. While many steps have been taken to ensure the health and safety of our families, employees and business partners, the effects of the pandemic continue to be felt in our operations and supply chain.
There are two main factors contributing to the current environment: First, many suppliers – in all sectors – have not been able to ramp up capacity quickly enough to respond to global demand. Second, COVID-19 continues to encumber operations as the infection and/or associated exposure quarantines are causing facilities to operate well below capacity currently and into the foreseeable future. The latter is also affecting logistics to and from manufacturing facilities and has contributed to significant processing disruptions at shipping ports around the world. These issues are not unique to our industry as heavy appliance, automobile, building supplies, and a host of other durable goods manufacturers are facing similar constraints.
As we look ahead to the coming months, we will experience intermittent and at times unpredictable availability dates for equipment. Our entire organization is working diligently to meet your product demands and we continue to work tirelessly to mitigate these challenges. We have been, and continue to take proactive measures to invest in raw materials, people and extended production hours to meet strong market demand. In addition, we have added multiple assembly lines in our facilities, brought on a number of new suppliers to help bolster supply and mitigate against disruption, purchased additional tools to increase mix flexibility and capacity, and continue to maximize the number of shifts in our plants.
Rest assured, our team is doing everything we can to work through these challenges to meet the needs of our collective customers and your business.
As always, we appreciate your patience, support and partnership.
