Latest update on your HUSKI Cooler pre-order...
The good news is that we have now completed production of the vacuum insulated stainless steel base. One step closer to overall product completion!
The bad news is that our unique mold for our gasket ran into some problems while in mass production and needs fixing. One step backwards.
More good news is that the mold is now in the process of being fixed and our order has been prioritised for completion. Half a step forwards!
At the end of August we also had the added complication of the Chinese government deciding to temporarily shut down all factories in the region where our factory is based. This region-wide shutdown was done to conduct 'environmental inspections' and lasted about three weeks.
After some digging, we discovered that these shutdowns are done on occasion by the Chinese government to temporarily reduce pollution for important events. In this case it sounds like there was a summit which had some important people they wanted to impress. Apparently they did something similar for the Beijing Olympics 🤔
Everything is back up and running now though. However, this did mean there were no steps anywhere for a while.
The net result of all this is that we hope to be able to deliver your HUSKI early to mid October. However, it's important to note that the timeline may change again.
We are producing something brand new and there might still be unexpected surprises around the corner. All I can promise is that we're doing everything we can to make the best product possible and get them to you as soon as we can.
Again, your support and patience is really appreciated. We'll continue to keep you in the loop on production. If you have any questions or feedback, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Have an awesome weekend. I'm sorry your beers won't be as cold as they will be in the not too distant future.
