July 2021 Update

It is now July 2021… Manufacturing inventory uncertainty is the norm.

  1. Material costs are rising – dramatically in many cases
  2. Material availability North America – we are seeing shortages of basic industrial components
  3. Material availability Global - we are seeing shortages of basic industrial components
  4. Logistics – cost increases and delivery delays never seen before

Interesting times.

Frustrating times.

Challenging times.

Time to step up and rise above.

We are not called Spartan because it sounded good.

We are, deep in our collective souls, Spartans.

Spartan Sling will not willingly fail in our mission to ensure that our customers have the rigging materials that they require to safely complete their missions. We are a minimum of 3 vendors deep in all products that we utilize in production or sell from the shelf. In most instances we have 5 vendors to choose from.

We have invested (significantly) in our inventory in order to have what you need when you need it and to help keep costs down. I would urge customers to take the time to investigate their rigging inventory and replace damaged rigging now, while costs continue to be reasonable. If possible, look a little further down the road and consider buying rigging materials ahead of time. We have been told by our vendors that industry cost prices will increase by 20% to 25% as a minimum across the board, starting around the middle of July through early August.

Thank you for everything that you do to support SPARTAN SLING MFG day in and day out. We appreciate your business and we wish you, your colleagues, your families and friends the very best through the balance of 2021.

We are doing everything we possibly can to support you throughout these times… as always.
