Semiconductor Shortage at Furuno

Received from Furuno:

Global Supply Chain & Shipping Issues Continue To Impair Inventory & Impact Deliveries

Throughout this year, we’ve issued updates to keep you informed regarding several global issues impacting equipment production and deliveries. In addition to well-known challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we've also advised of several events specifically impacting the supply chain of electronic components from South East Asia and shortages of semiconductors worldwide. In keeping with our pledge to maintain open lines of communications with our Valued Dealers & Authorized Resellers, knowing that you need to keep your customers well informed, we feel it’s essential to provide you with this update.

We truly wish we had more positive news to share with you. However, the reality is that Furuno, along with numerous other electronics/technology manufacturers, continues to be impacted by ongoing supply chain and global shipping issues, creating further production delays and extended delivery times. These delays are now affecting a wider range of Furuno products beyond those we last reported to you. As this is an ever-changing, fluid situation, it would be futile to offer any specific product list or delivery schedule within this document, as that information is likely to change (positively or negatively) within days or weeks of this publication.

Therefore, when you are in need of product availability or an update on a specific order, we urge you to contact our Order Service staff in Camas or Denton, who will work to provide you with the very latest information they have at their disposal. We also completely understand the uncertainty and frustration this situation creates for you and your customers, as we are experiencing those same feelings. All we can ask is that you try to maintain the trust we’ve hopefully built with you as a supportive, consistent vendor and be confident that we will continue to be as transparent and communicative as possible in the days and months to come.

Most importantly, please know that all of us at Furuno, here in the USA and throughout the world, are working tirelessly to do everything within our power to increase production and improve delivery times in all ways possible. We sincerely appreciate not only your patience and cooperation but more so your loyalty and trust!

Furuno USA, Inc.

Semi shortage an Furuno

I am in the electronics industry. There is probably no sector that is not similarly impacted. Even the big auto manufacturers are uncertain of schedules. Add this to labor and shipping challenges and it is likely we will not see any relief for 6+ months.
For many of the manufacturers they are receiving no firm ship dates from their supply chain and thus cannot commit to their distributors and dealers. Thus these types of announcements.
