San Leandro, CA – Skate Industry News: The Product Shortage Is Coming To An End!

Is the shortage over?? Almost…

Covid-19 has put a halt on industries across the board in 2020. Including skateboarding. Products have been hard to come by and steadily increasing in price. Shops have closed due to lack of inventory and brands suffered. Here we are in 2021 and there are rays of sunshines peaking through the ominous clouds of last year. Shops are beginning to fill up again, manufacturers are ramping up production, boxes are arriving and brands are launching. It’s a new day! Everyone is scrambling to make it out of the woods and demand is at an all time high.

‘Companies that manufacture in North America have been able to scale up production faster, whether at BBS in Mexico or Bones Wheels in central California. Bones was able to go ahead with its scheduled plans to move their factory during the springtime lockdown, and ramp up their production quickly. “We were manufacturing it, we were shipping it out,” said Rob Washburn, brand manager at Bones. “We had that luxury because we’re here in the USA.” [..] That seems to be a recurring theme throughout the industry, which nearly buckled under demand in the spring. “It’s a drag that no manufacturer can really supply the demand right now,” Jeff Kendall said. “But the upside is that we’re all selling quite a bit more than we did last year at this time. Our production facilities are producing quite a bit more. It just caught everyone off guard. I hate the phrase ‘perfect storm’, but that’s what it was.” He estimates that NHS will be completely caught up and able to meet demand between April and June of 2021.’  – states Jenkem Mag
