2021 has been a very exciting an interesting year. While sales continue to increase, the cost to build all of our products continues to escalate at a very rapid rate. The lack of labor in the workforce, a raw materials shortage as well as a continued increase in energy costs (which affects the conversion of raw materials into finish goods) continue to factor into our production cycle.
At the R. Lang Company, manufacturers of Tru-Frame® Building Products, we take all these factors very seriously. We are doing are best to minimize lead times while putting out the best product we can. We are cross training all of our employees to make sure that we don’t have any vacancies in any of our production lines. We continue to put employee safety first with daily COVID-19 protocols in place.
We are looking forward to servicing all of our dealers in 2022. I wanted to take a minute and thank all of our dealers for their patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. We are all in this together and together we will come out of this stronger.
Stay safe and be well.
