COMPANY UPDATES

NEW FACILITY

+ See renders of the new building in our 5 Year Anniversary Blog!
+ 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~ sqft facility. 3 acres is more than we need at this moment, but it will allow us to expand if necessary without moving again. 
We closed on the construction loan for our new facility in February. Since then, we have been playing tag with the city and different changes that have to be made to the plans but are hopefully very close to breaking ground.


FUTURE PRODUCTS

GMK BOTANICAL 2 *

PRODUCTION QUEUE

+ Current estimated shipping date from the keyset manufacturer is November 2022.

+ Deskpad groupbuy orders (that do not contain keysets/RW caps) are currently being fulfilled. Tracking numbers have been generated for all orders, however, not everyone will see tracking updates at this time since they have not all been packaged and shipped yet. We have to wait for the remaining half of our shipment to be released from the container freight station in order to fulfill the remaining orders. The CFS is in Huntsville so it should get released to be delivered to us within the next week or so. Sorry to those who received tracking for their orders before they were ready to ship - we usually print and process in batches rather than all at once.
