Toren is going overseas! But not in that plane...
Based on how the second prototype looked (if you missed it, read about it here), we’re getting very close to moving into full production on the Fundamental Shell, so it’s time for Ethan to head to China. Ethan is just now beginning preparations for his trip, where he’ll be visiting Toray’s facilities just outside of Shanghai, as well as the factory where our jackets are being constructed.
The primary purposes of Ethan’s visit are to meet the employees on the ground who will be building the garments, as well as observe the production line and working conditions. He’ll also be working with representatives of Toray and the factory to determine capacity and continue negotiations on final pricing.
The trip is scheduled for January 3-7 and we’ll be sure to report back on how everything goes!
