We thought you may be interested in a new article just released, as it talks about the very issues that we are all facing...

  • Managers Deal With Low Inventories, High Volatility

  • Managers Deal With Low Inventories, High Volatility

    Once again from ICIS, the Chemical Industry analysts of market intelligence, we feature an article that is very pertinate to our times.

    This article highlights the effect to the financial and economic crisis of 2008-2009, and how this has impacted on the supply of raw materials.

    Key Points include:

    • Low supplier inventories following last crisis
    • Commodity price volatility
    • Customers need to plan further ahead
    • Supplier base shrinks including rationalised grades
    • Dealing with volatility
    • Formula based pricing
    • Localised vendor managed supply

    Elastochem have put a lot of effort and energies to manage the above issues, with many customers enjoying the benefit of localised supply with contracted pricing. We firmly believe that working together with our customers regarding forecasting and local stock-holding can ease the risks of living so far from our raw material suppliers.

    If you wish to discuss supply options to reduce the risk of the low inventories and high volatility, please call us on 0800 64 35 35.
