Hello everyone 👋
As we near delivery, we'll start to publish a weekly update each Sunday to keep you all up to date on our progress. In the interest of full transparency, I will post our production plan, enabling you to measure our progress in the final stages.
Week Ending 19/02/2021 (Friday)
This week, we mounted the casting impressions we shared last week onto the foundry casting plate. The job turned out to be quite labour-intensive. They must be mounted correctly to ensure the best results in the casting process. I've included some images below. 😃
In the interest of expediting delivery, we have decided to stagger production by colour. The foundry can only produce a relatively small volume of castings per week. To do this, we will reduce the required casting yield to move onto machining and then onto the paint and final assembly. Allowing us to progress material through the remaining processes at the fastest rate.
The only economical way to do this is to group the batches by colour and manufacture mills, starting with the most popular colour.
With our suppliers' other customers/commitments in mind, please use the below production plan as a guide when we expect each stage to complete.
In future weekly posts, we can measure our production success while keeping everyone updated on the progress we've made.
In light of this change, should you decide that you'd like to amend your mill's colour, we are more than happy to oblige. As always, I urge those who would prefer their money back to please get in touch with us. We appreciate this has been a long journey, and the last thing we want is for you to have had a negative experience shopping with us.
Thank you for your patience, support and kind words throughout our starting journey. If you'd like to get in contact with Guy directly, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. In the mean time we will keep pressing forward with our plan!
