Sammanfattning: The goal of the study is to examine the effect Covid-19 has had on manufacturing companies.It begins with a review of how the supply chains have tackled earlier disturbances and thepotential implications that can follow. The two manufacturers Essity and Borealis have beenexamined to show how they have been affected by the pandemic and which measures they havetaken. The question at issue is therefore “How has the pandemic affected manufacturingcompanies and how have their way of working changed during this time?”Following a chapter about relevant subjects regarding handling of risk and complexity withinthe supply chain, the method section describes how the study and the interviews have beenconducted. The essay consists of a qualitative study where an interview has been held with anemployee from both companies. The survey is of both an explorative and descriptive naturewhere the interviews have been used as a foundation for later results.The result section shows that both companies have changed some of their ways and routines tobe able to manage the effects and opportunities of the pandemic. The most recurring challengeshave been connected to either a changed demand, acquisition of materials and challengesregarding logistics. Difficulties to acquire the correct quantity of outsourced products havelargely been linked with the rise of demand within those categories. Finding new ways tomarket old products and sourcing new products to sell have shown to be lucrative opportunities.Drawn conclusions are that both companies have managed the challenges associated with thepandemic well by being flexible and taking advantage of the given opportunities.It has shown to be advantageous to have control over the production stage in a time like thisplagued with uncertainty. The essay has shown the importance of keeping the productionrunning to avoid a shortage of products. The size and ability of the companies in question tohelp their different departments is also a point to take into account.
