The guys over at Create Originals have had to face lots of unfortunate events in the process of making their dream CRS frames come to life, and dealing with Chinese manufacturers is probably enough to make anyone turn insane. In addition to sharing this last update with our readers, we would also like to take this opportunity to assure Create of our support: stay strong guys!
“When we first reported the faulty parts to the manufacturer they assured us that they would remake the parts once they returned from their break for Chinese New Year. Once they returned, they changed their story to “We will remake the faulty parts on the second order”. Obviously, there will be no second order if we can’t complete the first order. So we have been trying to get them to see the light, but they are not cooperating as of yet. We are not giving up on trying to get them to make good on the faulty products since that would be the fastest and easiest way to resolve this. However, we are also looking into and working towards the possibility of having them made somewhere else. If that is the case then it will take a bunch more time. Not just for the tooling and manufacturing but also to earn the money to actually pay for that and reship all of the parts.
Despite this new set back we remain determined to work through all of the issues. One way or the other this will be done.” – Hakeem & Brian
