Byer of Maine is the largest supplier of emergency cots and folding furniture in the US. But following Hurricane Sandy, their inventory is gone. The outdoor living company had 10-thousand emergency cots on hand when the storm hit the New York / New Jersey coast.Its 24-hour emergency response team distributed every single one of them the weekend the storm struck.Retailers like L.L. Bean and Cabela’s will have to go without their products while they make more.Byer says the stores have been very understanding and are willing to wait considering the circumstances.
