The first batch of English material (seeUpdate #61), which left early in Europe, has already cleared customs and is now being shipped, and is being processed in North America.
Here is the second shipment:
EU - ETA 11/12 Bremerhaven (Germany) - Ship Name: MERIT MAERSK
In the last few months, the management of the work with the factory has been very complex due to the constant changes in the production end dates.
The initial agreement was to deliver the material by the end of May, then it was pushed back to mid-July, then mid-September, then the end of October, and finally it was pushed back again to mid-November.
All of this turned into a monster to manage on our side: partners angry about the delay, launch plans constantly pushed back, constant reorganization of work and priorities, and external communications difficult to manage and rightly perceived as bad by many of you. For example, we can tell you that Requiem, our next project, was originally scheduled for late June, then pushed back to late September, and now pushed back to early next year.
It has happened more than once that when we have communicated dates, we have been forced to correct them. When we didn’t communicate because the information from the factory was absolutely uncertain, we created just as much uncertainty on your side. In short, it was a real « whatever we do, we do wrong » moment.
And finally, we missed the summer delivery, the release for Essen, and even the Christmas sales.
The nervousness some of you are feeling is understandable; this message is not meant to be a justification, only an explanation. However, if you want to see the glass half full, BRWR is finally finished and on its way!
As you know, we have received the first production units. Of course, it has been a long wait, but we can once again confirm that the final result is truly spectacular, and we are convinced that you will be ultra-satisfied!
Thank you all again for your patience, Rebirth is really close now!
