Time to Control Your Volume
A lot has happened the past few weeks. We started shipping Knops by the end of May and have shipped orders every week since then. We are extremely happy with the first feedback we received from backers telling us they use Knops in all kind of different situations with great success. Check out this review by Unbox Therapy, which is also very positive!
Most of the team members are working at our production center every day. As Knops is a completely new product, it requires new production processes, and the entire team been working around the clock to optimize and accelerate those processes. We are helping out by providing good work instructions, assisting the employees in the process and fine-tuning and optimizing the assembly process ourselves. We also acquired an extra welding machine to ramp things up, and are almost doubling our output (number of knops) every week.
Arjen and Richard have spent a lot of time optimizing production and quality control. Each set of Knops is going through an extensive testing procedure on 7 points to ensure perfect fit, acoustic quality and smooth operation. We are testing every single unit to maintain a high-quality standard and making sure we only ship great products.
So now for the news you all have been waiting for: we will share the earlier promised delivery schedule this Tuesday! This schedule will be a dynamic schedule which we will update according to how the production is going. As said, we are improving production and are accelerating as we go and we will update the schedule accordingly.
In broad lines: We expect to have sent out all orders to our Kickstarter backers by July.
O yes, some of you have been asking how many Knops we have sent out. By the end of next week we expect to have shipped over 30% of all Kickstarter orders.
We will share a new update this Tuesday with the delivery schedule.
