Hurricane Laura and the PVC Supply Chain

A potentially large hurricane, being called Laura, is currently moving toward the Gulf Coast. There’s a lot of PVC-related manufacturing and infrastructure located in Laura’s path. This development has the potential to disrupt the PVC supply chain, which has already been experiencing tightness related to Covid-19 stoppages.

What’s Happening, How We’re Preparing

We’re currently preparing for and taking safety measures with our team in Houston, TX and other distribution centers that could be affected by Hurricane Laura. If you’re located in this area, we are wishing the best for you and your team, and hoping that we all get through this quickly and safely. For more information and to track weather conditions, please visit the National Weather Service.

We pride ourselves on keeping our stock high, so that you can manage your inventory during volatile times like these, allowing you to buy what you need, when you need it. While we’re taking steps necessary to protect our inventory and delivery trucks, damage to property, roads and other infrastructure may cause delays in orders. Damages to PVC infrastructure will exasperate an already tight supply of PVC Pipe.
