PureSys would like to update our customers on where things stand as we reach the end of Q1 2021.

Several of our suppliers have had multiple COVID related losses of man hours with departments working with a reduced team since last year (Customer service, shipping, planning, accounting, QA and manufacturing). Additionally, under the Defense Production Act of the United States, all US based suppliers are legal obligated to prioritize orders related to Prime contracts. Only customers with an official HRPAS letter rated to a “Dx” or “Do” priority will receive improved lead times.

To counteract this, our Key Suppliers have various productivity initiatives in-place - of which we have been constantly updated on. Nonetheless, there are still disruptions in lead-time turn around for supply.

Please see as below for the brief updates:

Sanisure - Lead times for new sterilized assemblies are now around 16-18 weeks

Saint Gobain - Several product lines have been affected due to raw material shortage

Colder Products Company - Ample Supply for common products have been stocked, general lead-times have been extended by 1-2 weeks for parts requiring production.

Nordson Medical - Supply is still in the recovery phase and steps are being taken to increase the speed of production.

For specific product updates/ change notifications, please get in touch with your local contact or send us an email inquiry to sales@puresys.com.sg.

Hopefully with the Vaccine coming soon we can get back to normal (a post-pandemic normal), towards lead-time recovery as per pre-covid times.
