Geo Martin Supplier BCN Report 2021

Dan D’Angelo, Vice President Sales, Geo. M. Martin Company reports, “From the operations point of view, 2021 wasn’t much different than 2020. We were still in the midst of the pandemic, dealing with the new government regulations and ways of doing business, but we adapted well to these changes. Like everyone else we faced a few challenges, but even with supply chain interruptions, and a few other obstacles, it was still basically business as usual.”

“While it may not be as easy to get face-to-face with customers as it was pre-pandemic, we have maintained very strong and consistent communications with our customers. In person when we can, and when it’s not possible to be face-to-face, we’ve adapted our means of communication so we can still deliver the outstanding attention, service and support our loyal customers have relied on for over 90 years.”

“Everyone was a bit nervous in mid-2020 not knowing how things would pan out and what the new normal was going to be. Then in the 4th quarter of 2020 we began to experience a very strong demand in both the domestic and international markets. This carried over into and throughout 2021 and is continuing into 2022. Sales were and continue to be very strong. We had a comfortable backlog coming into 2021 and we’re entering 2022 with an even stronger backlog.”

“Throughout the changes and issues the pandemic has brought about, like many manufactures on both the equipment and boxmaker sides, we continued to meet our customer obligations and expectations for service and delivery. We had a very strong year, and we are very pleased.”

“Even with the robust demand for our products, we have been able to maintain and even increase our dedication to R&D. In 2022 we look forward to some new and exciting product announcements that will focus on further enhancing converting productivity, efficiency, and profitability.”
