Why are there currently long delivery times?
The shortage of semiconductors and microchips is currently the main reason for long delivery times. Production bottlenecks in the supplier industry are also a contributing factor. Other reasons are delays in the supply chains.
Why are semiconductors and microchips in such short supply?
Demand for semiconductors is currently rising faster than manufacturers are creating new capacity. And almost all industries need these special components due to the advance of digitalisation. In addition, the events of the last few months have led to temporary factory closures and production stoppages at chip manufacturers.
What is KOSTAL doing about the delay in delivery?
If individual components are not available due to the lack of semiconductors, they are adapted. This is done, for example, by integrating alternative components that enable faster buildability and shorter delivery times.
