Managing Supply Chain Disruption


Matthew Gierke, Principal
FMI Consulting




Between 2020 and 2022, your business likely received phone calls from vendors to notify you that key equipment or material deliveries were delayed – and that instead of being readily available in inventory, it would be months before they arrived. Perhaps you even had a vendor that told you they were unable to confirm a fixed price until the unit was loaded onto a truck for delivery. Like the flip of a light switch, material availability and pricing became our industry’s largest impediment to getting work done.

In this paper, FMI and the New Horizons Foundation will share with you what best-in-class SMACNA member contractors have learned– and give you the tools to be more effective in managing supply chain disruption.
