First of all, the price wouldn't be much lower. We are proud of the designe we made and materials we chose, we don't want to compromise. If we wanted to make IRONATE in China, we would have to spend a lot of time and money on quality control. Also, the transport from far east is expensive and takes a lot of time.
The other reason is much simpler and it doesn't have to do with business. We just love making stuff. We proudly dig in and get our hands dirty, that's what drives us.
We will automate some processes when the time comes. But we are committed to keep the production as close to our home town as possible.
