Hello to All the Beautiful People of our Big Jollylook Community!
Thank you for backing Jollylook Auto!
We hope you all are well, staying safe, and staying healthy.
In today's reality, many things take much longer than we want, slower than expected, but we continue to move forward towards our goal.
In April we managed to finally transfer all our existing machinery and raw materials already at hand for the Jollylook Auto to our new manufacturing partner in Kyiv.
This equipment is being installed in preparation for the commencement of manufacturing.
We are now in the pre-production phase:
Sergey has checked and tested the design and assembly of all the Jollylook Auto parts. He made some important changes to the design that will make the final product a lot more reliable.
Next week, right after Labor Day public holidays are over in China. We will be placing the first order for the samples of final plastic and metal parts. As soon as we receive these samples, we will do the final tests to assure everything works well. Once assured, we will place the parts order for the whole batch.
The manufacturing roadmap:
We really want to make a great camera with perfect electronics and mechanics, we'll be honest, we won't be able to ship Jollylook Auto to backers in July. We will produce the cameras gradually, starting with a very small batch and gradually increasing in volume to reduce the risk of having any defects.
May-June: receiving samples of all the parts, finalizing the assembly process, and ordering parts for the full batch.
July: first batch parts arrival and production start.
August: first small batch ready and shipping starts.
September: expanding manufacturing and shipping the second batch.
October: final batch ready and all rewards shipped.
Please note that this is the estimated plan, not the exact plan. There is a chance of a delay and we will let you know in advance if it changes.
Once again, It would have been very easy, like many businesses in Europe, to simply pull the pin and go out of business as a victim of the pandemic. We would like to assure you, we have not and we will not do that.
We are committed to the success of Jollylook Auto and to our faithful backers.
Thanks once again for your continuing support, without you, this project would not be possible, and because of you, it will succeed.
Please stay healthy and be safe.
Until next time,
The Jollylook team.
