Project Update XIX: CE Status Update
We have good news and bad news regarding the 240V units. The good news is that the units have their final CE certification and we don’t expect any more regulatory hurdles. Despite some obstacles with our factory, we've produced 160 units so far and if they pass our quality inspection, those units will go out to the earliest international backers next week.
Unfortunately, we continue to have difficulties with our factory and vendors. Specifically, our vendors have repeatedly delivered the wrong product to us, which has caused day-by-day delays. Also, this week, our factory discovered they did not have enough of one component (a controller PCB) to last through the production run. We are investigating why they seem to have lost almost 500 pieces, and have ordered additional PCBs in case the lost units can’t be found. Those units, however, take about 2 weeks to manufacture, meaning we won’t be able to ship the remaining 250 CE units until late March at the earliest. We do not want to use our factory as a scapegoat, but despite having a part of the Nomi-crew there keeping a watchful eye, there are some things that go wrong that are beyond our control.
We know it's been a long and frustrating wait. We hate to keep you waiting, but please know, we are so thankful for your patience, and are getting close to delivering Nomikus to your door steps. We’ll post another update once we find out the status of the first shipment of 240V units.
In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to email us at Info@Nomiku.com.
Dedicated to you,
Lisa, Abe, Bam, and Patrick
