Supply Assurance During Times of Shortages – SEMI CSP Back to Work Session 1

The COVID Pandemic has caused a worldwide shortage of many consumable supplies that SEMI members require.  Increased safety and PPE usage by new industries have strained the supply chain, forcing buyers to identify and establish relations with new providers, as many providers are in allocation mode working only with established customers. Thomas Scientific is hosting this session to provide insights into how to address this current predicament.
