Glaser and Associates & Supply Chain Solace

As a distributor and manufacturer of industrial fastening solutions, we have a lot of crossover with different types of manufacturing and construction businesses in a host of different industries.  With 50 years in fastening, we’ve seen a wide array of jobs and projects across these various industries.  Despite this diversity, one thing that we’ve seen in every field is this: emergencies.  Call it Murphy’s Law, or just another day on the job - something always goes wrong; someone orders the wrong part, someone misplaces the parts, someone else forgot to order the parts at all, and on, ad infinitum.  Maybe the part you need from your typical contracted supplier is on backorder, or the turn-around needs to be faster than they can provide, or they don’t carry it at all – there are a number of things that can make putting together all the pieces of the job a difficult task.

Glaser’s Guide to El Niño

Posted by Josh Glaser

Feb 16, 2016 6:30:00 AM

The term El Niño was first used over 300 years ago by Ecuadorian and Peruvian fisherman to describe a tide of warm water that developed periodically in the equatorial Pacific Ocean, bringing with it a period of high temperatures and heavy rains. El Niño now refers to a recurring weather phenomenon, typically beginning in late December, that alters climactic conditions—both mildly and severely—for at least several months, possibly up to two years.
