Our sectors are both massively affected by the disruption of the supply chains, the catering equipment even more than the heating equipment. In some cases, our member companies have not been able to deliver for months because they do not have the preliminary products.
As a rather small, national association, it is difficult, but not completely impossible, to exert influence on such a global problem. We do this through our umbrella organisations and get involved there. This is because they bundle the interests of different sectors, some of them from different nations. Because with regard to the disrupted supply chains, the entire industry is in the same boat.
