2022 Supply Chain Issues Mean Early Action on Capital Improvement Decisions
2022 may only be half over, but building owners, facility managers, engineers, and purchasing agents considering capital improvements for this fiscal year should start the process of determining their needs as soon as possible if they haven’t done so already. Companies typically hold off on making decisions and funding new equipment, upgrades, and repairs until the third or fourth quarter, but this is not a typical year. Ongoing supply chain problems, backlogs, and lead times up to 20 weeks mean that time may be running short if equipment must be received by the end of the fiscal year.
Omni can provide clients with invaluable input on the selection of electrical, instrumentation, and controls, including quality, reliability, technical support, and availability, and can help with alternative sourcing. Getting multiple prices on new equipment is always a given, but lead times are just as important as pricing right now and should be clearly stated on proposals.
Electrical equipment and instruments that owners may want to begin considering as soon as possible for the fiscal year 2022 include generators, ATS, UPS, LED lighting and controls, VFDs and starters, instrumentation/networking, substations, transformers, HMIs, PLCs, BAS, etc. This includes system upgrades, retrofits, and major repairs.
