Scotland-based leather supplier Muirhead has announced it has returned to its pre-pandemic manufacturing lead time of six weeks.
The firm credits investment in end-to-end processes and technical innovations for enabling it to maintain production through supply chain shortages during the pandemic.
Myles Hobbs, Head of Aviation EMEA and The Americas at Muirhead, said: “While lengthy and fragmented supply chains continue to pose challenges to many across the industry, we’re proud to be able to guarantee our usual six-week lead time to customers once again.
“Thanks to a continued investment in our manufacturing processes and operational excellence, our business is now more streamlined, efficient, and agile. We’re confident that Muirhead’s direct sourcing and unique end-to-end control of the supply chain will continue to set us apart, enabling us to deliver the highest quality, most consistent leather to the aviation and passenger transport industries.”
The firm recently struck a representation deal with U.S distributor Douglass Interior Products. Both companies had previously worked together, going back to the early 1980s.
