Important Announcement

The longshoremen’s strike against West Coast Harbors is now over clearing the way for reducing the backlog of container vessels that have been waiting weeks to unload. It is expected to take 2 to 3 months before the vessel traffic returns to normal. The Oil Workers union has been on strike at several fuel terminals across the United States and that strike could affect chemical terminals in Southern California which may lead to serious product shortages. Between these two events please work with your sales representative to insure you are informed concerning your orders.
