MISC UPDATES 


COMPANY UPDATES

NEW FACILITY

+ If you haven't heard, we are in the process of designing a different kind of metal rectangle. A new building. We are bursting at the seams at our current location, so we are way overdue for more space to stretch out and makes things more efficient.  
+ We have purchased a 3 acre parcel of land and are preparing for construction of a custom-built 12,000~ sq/ft facility. 3 acres is more than we need at this moment, but it will allow us to expand with new facilities as we grow in the future without moving again. 
We closed on the construction loan for our new facility so construction will hopefully begin soon.

GMK REDLINE 

COLOR MATCHING PHASE

+ Per the last Redline update, we received the latest round of color samples from GMK. They were not much different than the previous samples even after extensive feedback from us on what we needed to change. 

We strive to make our sets look the best they can, so we are not happy with where we are. We technically could approve the first round of samples and the set would look good, but the contrast between mod and alpha just isn’t quite right. They are closer in contrast to each other than the renders show.
Our solution is we are going to use our supplier for Bauer Lite resin to match the mod color that we need. GMK hit on both sides of the right color. One is too light and one is too dark, so we will be working with our supplier to hit that middle spot.
We are using our supplier because we should be able to have better communication and not have any language barriers with the weird translations that come with the concepts that are used to describe colors. We also will be able to fly up to the supplier should we need to, as they are in the US.
We have been waiting to post this info until we knew they would be able to help us out with this project. We should be able to get a chip from our supplier to send to GMK to match within a few weeks.
We apologize for the delay on this project. We just want it to look the best it possibly can and do not want to compromise if we don’t absolutely have to.
