APRIL 2020 I PCB007 MAGAZINE 77 For those of you who are using our offshore solutions, our Asian partners are all operating at 100%, but the lead times are extended due to a large backlog of orders created by the extended shutdown. With that said, we want all our customers to understand; given this unique situa- tion, the most proactive way to avoid supply chain delays is to submit your orders as soon as possible. This will allow ASC to procure laminates and pre-pregs as soon as possible, will ensure your printed circuit boards are manufactured and delivered without delay. Not knowing when this situation will subside, now is the time to r eview your forecast and place your orders now to alleviate delays. American Standard Circuits does maintain a vast inventory of materials; however, there are limits to what we have in our inventory. Although we make every attempt, it is simply impossible for us to have exact or enough materials in stock. For these instances, we rely on our long-standing relationships with our suppliers to help fulfill unexpected demand(s). ASC is committed to working with your team to get your PCBs shipped when you want them. March 23 Update: Pursuant to our open letter last week regarding our continued business operations at American Standard Circuits amid the COVID-19 outbreak, we wanted to provide the following update to our customers: • American Standard Circuits is classified as an essential business in the State of Illinois and will continue to operate as normal running three full shifts daily until further notice. • Aside from the previously known shortages of specific materials, there are currently no other material shortages resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak. Our management team remains in constant contact with our suppliers to ensure that any additional lead-time required for laminate materials are minimized and accurately quoted. • We are continuing our diligent efforts to ensure that all our employees are working in a clean and safe environment. If you have any questions or concerns regarding existing or placing new orders, please contact your customer service and or field sales representative for immediate response. Anaya Vardya President and CEO American Standard Circuits
