SPRING 2022 – IT’S TIME TO GET TO WORK HMI REP Feb 18, 2022 0000 Concrete Lifting Season Start up Reminders from the HMI Team Annie Baeten, Paul DelFino, Jen Mazur, Jesse Swetlik As the HMI team sat around the conference room table considering the Spring Blog, everyone had something urgent to say. So – we decided get everyone in the game with a bulleted easy to review check list format. FROM PAUL Supply – The big question on everyone’s mind is the supply shortages of foam. In anticipation of the current market circumstance HMI made bulk purchases at the end of 2021 and we can aggressively say: “market and sell with confidence – we will be able to supply our customers through 2022.” Market Forecast – Despite an overall schizophrenic market impacted by: global disorder, economic uncertainty, supply chain problems, residual Covid implications and a tough job market, our forecast for Concrete Lifting and Leveling for 2022 is optimistic. A tough winter in many parts of the country, cost and supply line issues with concrete, and continual housing shortages/value increases offset all of the negatives and leave us most optimistic that the surge of demand of the past several years will continue. Pricing – You do not need me to suggest that costs are changing fast. Not just yours! Be sure to survey the cost changes of replacement concrete in your market at the outset and continually through the 2022 season. Opportunities for price increases are inevitable and it is not in your best interest to be last.
