According to CEO Benno Dorer, supplies for other products will improve over the next six months. 'Disinfecting wipes, which are the hottest commodity in the business right now, will probably take longer because it’s a very complex supply chain to make them,' Benno Dorer, via Reuters. Dorer adds that because of massive demand, the "entire supply chain is stressed."
Linda Rendle, President and CEO-elect of Clorox, also says that expectations for demand in the fourth quarter were more than expected. 'We're certainly not at all happy with our service levels for our retail customers on many products. We have a high sense of urgency on this with all hands on deck.' According to Reuters, there is a shortage of polyester spunlace, a material used to make the wipes. Personal protective equipment, including medical gowns, also uses polyester spunlace.
