Strain on Supply Chains

A cutting edge approach to manufacturing helps retail meet the moment.

As the world shut down in 2020 and unemployment skyrocketed, questions turned to if and how consumer spending would recover. But by mid-2021, as consumers went out to stores or online to make purchases, retail found it could not keep up with demand.
