Velcro Companies Global Supply Chain for Personal Care

With the onset of the coronavirus worldwide, manufacturers of essential products increased production to address high consumer demand. Due to “stockpiling” these products, consumer behavior resulted in a shortage of supply and manufacturers worked tirelessly to refill the supply chain.  To meet this challenge, they needed an extraordinary increase in raw materials to quickly restock store shelves.  Among those essential products were diapers with VELCRO® Brand personal care fastening solutions.  By having a unified and stable product supply, manufacturing facilities around the globe, and expertise in sourcing, Velcro Companies’ robust global supply chain helped our strategic partners provide diapers (and their fastening solutions) to retailers and consumers around the world.

The Challenge Our Strategic Partners are Facing

As nonwovens products like face masks, antibacterial wipes, disinfecting wipes, and disposable medical gowns are in high demand, manufacturers face challenges in the supply of critical raw materials.

Our personal care customers need to have a continuity of supply, especially in today’s climate.  Avoiding supply chain disruption is essential for them to meet the demand of retailers and consumers. Regardless of location, manufacturers are looking for supply chain partners who have a qualified back-up supply, multiple manufacturing sites, solutions that meet quality standards and can provide on-time material arrival to their facilities no matter where they are located.
