There is a shortage of M95 mask in hospitals.
Why are all these M95 mask not where they are needed?
Why are manufactures not being paid?
IMO this bad management.
IMO management of the government has not been good, which is part of the covid problem.
If the government can not manage M95 mask, how will the government manage vaccinations well?
Even scarier to think liberal factions were holding them back as a political tactic.
I think of you as a logical person. I don't understand the logic of the statement.
All the companies that were part of Warp Speed received billions from the government,
Most of the CEO's of these companies are Republicans, why would they want to hold back?
Fully agree with your comments and I appreciate that you see me as a logical person. I am to a fault at my own peril sometimes.
Operation Warp Speed gave strong initiatives to Senators and Governors to promote strong manufacturing programs to produce PPE. And in that respect it has succeeded in spades. My direct experience with VLS manufacturers in the southeast, who ship all over the country confirms there is either gross over production leading to a glut in the supply chain or some extremely misleading and unethical things going on at the highest level of state and federal leadership.
PPE products are out there. I can not fathom how/why there is a bottleneck, especially when I see trucks returning back full of product.
Not sure where all the billions of dollars have gone but I know they have not been conventionally processed through the supply chain. If they funds were truly released it would seem the bucks inappropriately stopped somewhere.
In regards to the supply chain and normal order placement/order reception in manufacturing it is beyond FUBAR. I was told going in on this second wave of manufacturing conversion that we would be paid late and accept that. But I am like most service industries where normal payment is net 30 days. I haven't seen net 30 at all this year. And the last 90 days have been rough. A may have to borrow operating capital for the first time in 12 years. I turned down good work from 2 new customers this year for efforts in the PPE world which, right now, seem futile. As of right now I know the work was not performed and may still be on the table for me. Hopefully those bridges have not been burned.
I was at one of the facilities where we finished the conversion at yesterday and sure enough another two tractor trailer loads of PPE were returned. Like I said, beyond FUBAR.
