ASC Participates in White House Summit on Homebuilding Supply ChainThe Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) participated in a White House summit to discuss supply chain disruptions in the homebuilding industry. The summit included a small group of representatives from builders, lumber companies, retailers, realtors, loggers and labor unions, as well as other companies and organizations, such as ASC, which represent industries vital to homebuilding. Bill Allmond, ASC President, represented The Adhesive and Sealant Council.

Impact on Adhesive & Sealant Industry

Leading the summit was Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo who was joined by Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Marcia Fudge, National Economic Council Director Brian Deese, and Council of Economic Advisers Chair Cecilia Rouse.

The U.S. adhesive manufacturing industry was significantly impacted by the deep freeze along the Texas Gulf Coast in February, which led to severe supply chain disruption, price increases, and product shortages, many of which continue today. These challenges have consequently impacted downstream industries that use adhesives and sealants in their manufacturing process.

The Adhesive and Sealant Council is grateful to Secretary Raimondo and Secretary Fudge for the summit invitation and the opportunity to share with the Administration what supply chain challenges our industry has experienced and continues to experience,” ASC President Bill Allmond said. “The adhesive and sealant industry is essential to American manufacturing, as our technology solutions successfully enable thousands of everyday products and help them perform more sustainably,” he said. “We stand ready to assist the Biden Administration to identify long-term solutions that strengthen the resilience of our supply chains and better prepare them for the future.”
