Wow, what a year. Just when the world thought 2020’s Covid-19 shut-downs, mask mandates, stay at home orders, and business closings were enough to last a whole century, 2021 came and decided it wasn’t quite over.
2021 brought us a lot of (hopeful) bounce-back from the Covid-19 era. Businesses started to open again, people started to venture out and travel, even mask mandates were lifted. The world was finally able to start moving in the right direction of getting back to the “normal” we knew before, even though we are a long way from it.
2021 however had rain clouds of its own.
First and foremost, we had (and still have) the supply chain crises. Ports were closed, goods could not come in and out of the country. With this, we saw a shortage of several high-demand items, and saw prices of goods, services, vehicles, increase to extreme highs. Well, we made it out of 2021 and here we are about to head into 2022, hoping for the best.
Here at Next level, we had an eventful year in 2021. We stayed on track and were able to dodge a lot of 2020 and 2021’s bullets. We produced a ton of great products, we added new faces to our team, and we revised a lot of our products to provide some of the highest quality material handling and storage products on the market! And most important, we shipped.
Later in the year, we also acquired several new pieces of manufacturing technology that will ultimately make processes run smoother and more efficient. 2021 was a solid year for Next Level, but we can’t wait for what 2022 will bring!
In 2022 we expect nothing less than excellence. As in 2021, we will continue to move forward, and take advantage of machining and engineering technology. This will allow us to produce some of the highest-grade products the market has ever seen – stay tuned, because we expect to have some new great products be released.
We’re out to change the game for the supply chain and warehouse industry, with high quality, custom work being a specialty. Here at Next Level, we are so excited for what the future holds, and cannot wait to tell all our wonderful clients and future customers about it. We hope everyone’s 2021 was as great as ours (even if it had flaws of its own) and are looking forward to a fantastic 2022.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the entire Next Level team!
