Remember – Use Caution! A lot of false PPE supply opportunities are being circulated broadly from miscellaneous sources that should be carefully vetted prior to committing to orders or sending/wiring deposits. Many of these “opportunities” offer no true guarantee of supply material, quantity, date of shipment, or date of delivery. CPS continues to work closely with our known distributors to obtain industry Intel and chain supply updates.
