Some SEAMS members experience growth in 2021, despite challenges

Note: A number of SEAMS’ members responding to our survey reported a good to strong 2021, while others described business levels as average or moderate as the COVID-19 pandemic raged on and labor shortages, inflation and other issues continued to stifle growth. Numerous challenges will continue into 2022, but reshoring, nearshoring and back-shoring will continue to become more commonplace as supply chain issues shine a bright light on America’s massive import levels and the problems they produce, some respondents noted. As such, SEAMS members remained steadfast to their mission to establish a stronger US supply chain to assist retailers and brands seeking to meet fast-changing consumer demands, and SEAMS will continue to be the bridge-builder for these opportunities.  READ RESPONSES HERE
