Alpha Source Group Speaks to 24×7 Magazine about Impact of COVID-19 on Medical Parts Supply

MILWAUKEE, April 7, 2020

Keri Stephens, Editor-in-Chief at 24×7 Magazine, recently conducted a video interviewed of our President and CEO, Rich Springer, as well as the Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer at PartSource, David Brennan.

During this this in-depth discussion, the three discussed how COVID-19 is currently impacting the medical equipment parts market and the actions each company is taking to ensure supply and meet demand.

The specific topics they addressed included:

  • How the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting business at their companies
  • 24×7 survey results revealing concerns over sourcing parts from China
  • Medical equipment shortages

While both Rich and David continue to frequently monitor the situation and make adjustments each day, they simultaneously have their eyes on the future to determine what recovery will look like.  Rich reflected on what Q3 and Q4 will look like and states, “There might be a ripple effect on the supply chain that could cause a disruption. … [T]here might be some of that aspect as we begin to look at the demand for recovery and post-recovery.”

To address this, he’s aware that Alpha Source Group will need to “make sure that the supply chain is there to meet the demands of the rest of the year and even into next year, because there is going to be this back-order element and this pent up demand.”  Moving forward, he said the company is already making plans to relieve this pressure to ensure they continue to supply parts moving forward.
