Copier News Update:
In the spring of 2021, copier manufacturers reported a major shortage of microchips. This chip shortage is not simply poor supply chain management; it’s the lingering effects of the pandemic and slowed production. This semiconductor chip shortage will carry over into the next couple of months as nationwide logistics are still shorthanded. Chips are essential for all copiers and printers from all manufacturers, which is why we’re currently experiencing a printer shortage.
The chip shortage cause is clear, but the industries experiencing the strain vary widely; from auto manufacturers to telecom companies. How does “chip shortage 2021″ affect C3 Tech?
