The market for receiving commercial pool furniture and industrial site amenities in 2021 can be summed in one word: “Delayed”! All year there have been substantial material, labor, and freight shortages that have pushed back estimated arrival dates on products, sometimes double or triple past their original expectations. This industry-wide problem of raw material deficiencies caused by the ongoing covid crisis continues to make national headlines. Though we would like to say that the worst is behind us, it is foreseen the situation will not be improving anytime soon. In fact, the growing demand from establishments opening their doors at the same time has created a backlog of orders waiting to be fulfilled as factories standby to receive resources.
For this reason, we encourage all customers who are planning to re-furnish their HOA, parks, schools, hotels, waterparks, etc. in the spring of 2022, to place all orders at the end of 2021. This includes all picnic tables, benches, chaise lounges, dining chairs, patio tables, umbrellas, trash receptacles, bike racks, grills, bleachers, and shade structures. By placing your order before January 2022 you may be able to avoid new year price increases and secure a spot on the production schedule for spring delivery. Due to high demands and unpredictable material shortages, it is important to note that all orders cannot be held for a specific date and will be shipped out as soon as complete. Please plan ahead and be safe!
