Outlook for 2021

Blum UK Update

Thursday 18th February 2021

As we enter the second month of 2021 and the ongoing challenges that the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic continues to place upon our daily lives both personally and in our businesses, we at Blum thought this was an opportune moment to give you our partners an insight into how we view the current situation and the upcoming year.

To look forward it is always important to take on the lessons of the past and there is no doubt 2020 delivered many challenges and lessons for our business. The unexpected rise in worldwide demand following the initial lockdown period in Spring 2020, caused a significant and visible logistical impact to our industry.

During this period, we attempted with your assistance to work within a spirit of transparency and partnership to overcome the challenges posed by the volatility of the market. We learnt many lessons and we are using these learnings to improve our service to you as we move forward in 2021.

As a long-standing partner of Blum, you quite rightly have high expectations of our business and its service levels. During the second half of 2020, the aforementioned volatility of the market and the effect this had on selected product lines meant that at times we were not able to meet your high expectations of our relationship, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any adverse impact on your business this caused.

As we look forward to the coming year, it is forecasted that the positive level of consumer investment in the home improvement sector that started in 2020 will continue throughout 2021.

The basis of any partnership is to be open and transparent, we are confident that across the majority of our product lines will be able to meet the market demand, we are aware though that we will have challenges on certain lines. We will make personal contact in the coming weeks with any partner who we believe may be affected, to discuss proactively how we can move forward and continue to support your business.

We are committed to an increased level of investment this year to expand our production capacity, this is in addition to our commitment for continuous improvement within our processes to increase efficiency across our service package. This investment, added to the ongoing two-way dialogue that allows visibility into your future requirements, will have a positive effect upon our ability to meet your expectations and smooth out any supply chain turbulence.

We are committed to stay in regular contact so that our partnership stays strong and are convinced that by working together we can come through this moment in history positively.

If you have any questions in regard to the present situation then please do not hesitate to call your regular Blum contact or myself.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and trust in our business and would like to wish you a successful 2021!


Yours Sincerely

David Sanders

Sales & Marketing Director
