We are seeing major supply issues with the paper industry having a huge impact on the Wisconsin Economy. We are seeing long lead times, allotments, NO paper availability and large price increases. The current USA suppliers are simply not able to keep up, and we have become dependent on overseas suppliers to fill the void.
The Wisconsin Printing Industry is a major supplier for commercial printing, publication, catalog and direct mail printing leading the nation. Wisconsin is a premier manufacturer of labels and packaging. Wisconsin is a major producer of corrugated products. Wisconsin is the leader in the Converting Industries.
We are seeing major disruptions for customers in the packaging industries like food, consumer goods, logistics pharmaceuticals, chemicals, etc. because of the severe disruptions of the supply chains. We are seeing publications go digital with major supply issues with the catalog and direct mail industries. The paper shortage will have far-reaching consequences, especially for the Wisconsin economy! We will be addressing these issues to try to come up more questions and answers to the issues.
