Supply Chain Webinar: 

Master Builders Victoria (MBV) members joined a special Supply Chain webinar on Monday night to hear firsthand some of the reasons for the current supply chain shortages crippling the building and construction industry, including a shortage of timber. 

The reason MBV arranged this special webinar is because we are aware that, in addition to COVID-19 and the uncertainty of recent lockdowns, many members have also been struggling to source key materials which have been in short supply.   

MBV CEO Rebecca Casson said that this is a very important topic for members. 

“Current conditions have seen a reduced capacity in supply chains for building products not only across Australia but overseas as well,” she said. 

“We also understand from talking to many of our members that the extent of the delays and the cost increases vary greatly, and they depend on the contractor, their suppliers, and their locations – and we know this is a very real problem across our industry.” 

MBV has been very active on this subject, particularly raising the profile of it in the media, and we hope that the webinar helped to inform members, keep everyone up to date with what’s been happening, and answer any burning questions. 

We are continuing to discuss these types of issue with Commissioner for Better Regulation and Red Tape Commissioner Anna Cronin who has been asked to investigate the issue of building and construction material shortages. 

Members will receive a link to view the webinar via our member email communications.
