Welcome back to another bi-weekly delivery update. Here are the numbers of bikes produced in the last 2 weeks:
Total Produced – 51 bikes
Due to a shortage of materials, the number of bikes produced this week has dropped slightly. The team is currently waiting for a new batch of materials to arrive as it has been held up for longer than expected at the port of origin. The new materials are expected to arrive within the next 2 weeks. Due to this, full production will unfortunately have to be suspended for 2 weeks.
During this time, the team will make full use of the lull in production to optimize our production and QC process to make the process much more efficient than ever before. We’ll also be working on certain sub-assembly parts and further quality checks on available parts, and setting up our secondary assembly site to increase production capacity.
Correspondingly, we will also temporarily stop sending out shipping surveys during this period and will resume once the materials have arrived at our manufacturing facility.
With the experience that the team has gained over the last few months, we are happy to be able to say that production efficiency has been increasing steadily, which translates to an increased production capacity.
In addition to this, a second assembly site has already been identified, and will begin operations by the next month to further add on to production capacity once the new materials arrive.
All bikes in Batch 3 and Batch 4 have now been completed and are ready to be shipped out. We know that many have been waiting patiently for Batch 3 to be shipped out, but unfortunately, Easyship still needs some time to sort out some legal documents to enable import of the bikes into the EU by sea.
Batch 4 (to USA) is expected to be given the all clear soon for shipping, and we will work closely with Easyship to release both containers ASAP once all documentation has been cleared.
We truly appreciate the patience and support that you have given us these last few months and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on the bike!
Moving on, we will be focusing our efforts on Batches 5 and 6. Production of Batch 5 is now currently 50% complete. For those who have not yet paid the shipping fees for Batch 5, please do it as soon as possible to prevent any further delays in production for your bike.
