Over the past few months, we have been evaluating a second source for the polyester film we use in our heat shrink tapes. We have found this second source’s product to meet or exceed our requirements and match very closely to our current/primary supplier. We intend to approve this secondary supplier and source only about 20% of our total demand from them.
This change will be put into effect on Monday, June 15, 2020. Shipments after that date will be made from raw material supply from either or both of our approved suppliers. We feel it is important to have a second source, not just with lab approval, but one who has demonstrated that they can be a dependable business supplier with successful field experience. This change will help to shore up our raw material supply chain and provide Dunstone added flexibility in addition to overall shorter lead times from our suppliers.
Requests for samples can be placed with your sales or customer service contact.
