What Should the Industry Expect in 2022?

According to the Q&A, supply chain issues could persist into 2022 and beyond.

Some other topics covered in this conversation include:

  • How price increases of products or materials impacted operations
  • What needs to happen for the  industry to  improve
  • What issues Wilder has seen with any material shortages or supply chain issues

What About Renewable Energy?

Additionally, Wilder discussed that he expects the migration to renewable energy sources to be a big trend in 2022.

“The accelerated focus on reducing carbon footprints will push all companies to add to their sustainability initiatives,” Wilder said. “We plan to add solar panels to the rooftop of our manufacturing facility and generate more than 50% of our energy demand from the sun.”
