Have you heard of the Apollo / Transco fire in Banning CA, as reported on https://www.analogplanet.com/content/major-vinyl-production-catastrophe-apollotransco-lacquers-burns ?
Tragically this leaves only one remaining lacquer factory in operation, located in Japan.
Have you heard any feedback already from cutting engineers or others in the business? What’s the estimated short-term impact?
I sincerely hope they get back on their feet with the help of their insurance, and that people won’t lose their jobs.
