In these trying times, open for business is anything but business as usual. Our supply chains have been strained with vendors closing for extended periods of time, our shippers delayed from covid shutdowns and delays and the cost of our raw materials and finished goods continuing to increase. We have done our best to insulate our customers, from these increases. Currently we have hit the point where we have no choice but to pass on added cost on where needed. We are confident that business will normalize again, although it likely will be a new normal. Do not be concerned, Mann Lake and its partner companies will weather this storm. As always, we appreciate your business and ask for your continued patience.
