August News, Shipping Update + More Adaptalux Photos!
Sorry for the silence once again, we have been focused on fixing a Chinese supplier issue on one of the parts, which was mentioned in the previous update. All the images throughout this update have been taken by Adaptalux users.
CHINESE SUPPLIER ISSUE
As we highlighted in our last update, our shipping schedule had taken a hit as a second batch of parts for Adaptalux were not correct due to our Chinese supplier making a mistake. This slowed us down considerably with our assembly and shipping process as it was such a vital part. Throughout this month we have been working with them to identify what went wrong and how to improve there production methods to ensure this does not happen again. We are pleased to report the issue has now been solved and the fully working parts are now on the way to us in the UK, we expect to receive them on Thursday.
Throughout the last few weeks, we have being shipping out 10 a week of the Ultimate pack award using parts from the good batch whilst we solved the supplier issue. From Thursday onwards, we will be solely focused on shipping and aiming to ship out 50 a week of the Ultimate Pack and following that 80 a week of the smaller packs. We aim to have all of the KS awards & website pre-orders shipped out by the 21st of October.
