As businesses continue to recover from the massive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, many are forced to look at the multiple fractures in their supply chain systems and faced with an unwavering question: How will they reckon with any future disruptions?
To answer this question, businesses need to understand that massive supply disruptions occur when the entire value chain sees the impact—from the ability to get supplies from trusted suppliers in different countries, to what’s happening with the end consumer.1 During the COVID-19 pandemic, global demand for single-use gloves skyrocketed, exceeding the existing production capacity of manufacturers by an estimated 215 billion units, or about 37%.2 And so, the healthcare industry felt the strain of a global demand surge on their supply chains. Moving forward, in addition to working with organizations like Premier with supply chain expertise, businesses must partner with suppliers who are proactive and provide solutions through a crisis to help build resilience against future shocks.
Stockd® supplier Bosma Enterprises® strives to be such a partner. Bosma works with businesses to deliver products, supply chain management, and logistics, while fulfilling its mission to create jobs and training programs for people who are blind. To meet the surging demands of their partners, Bosma worked on a product solution to develop exam gloves. Good Works™ Performance Pro™ examination gloves from Bosma Enterprises are reliably sourced, in stock, and ready to ship. Every purchase from Bosma creates jobs for people who are blind or visually impaired and would otherwise face a 70% unemployment rate.3
