It is with great sadness we share the loss of Courtney Langdon-Codd, passing Thursday, September 9th, due to the Coronavirus. Courtney joined the MBK Team in 1998, serving in many different roles, including Sales, Customer Service, Supply Chain & Logistics, and finally Project Management. Courtney was a dedicated employee, problem-solver, and leader. You could always count on Courtney to do her job and step up to help others and lead the way. She mentored and trained many employees and was always patient and positive. Her devotion to the company and empathetic attitude toward her peers was exemplary to all. The MBK family will miss her greatly.
Businesses across the globe are experiencing shortages of chemicals, materials, plant closures, workforces, and much more that were previously thought improbable in our lifetime. Raw material and supply constraints and logistics in conjunction with a significant increase in demand have made the supply chain volatile. That being said, we are experiencing unprecedented delays at nearly every step of the procurement, delivery, and manufacturing process.
