Manufacturing Delays

by David Hosken

Unfortunately, we are facing more delays with our first batch of boards from China. Because of the Coronavirus outbreak, PCBWay was unable to meet the February 7th delivery date they had given us. The opening of the factory was initially delayed by one week, but the PCB Assembly section was again unable to re-open this week.

It is a very difficult situation, and they have to follow instructions given to them by the government, which is constantly assessing the situation. We very much hope they get control of the virus soon, but it is of course impossible to say when PCBWay will return to full production.

Below is the reply we received from PCBWay a couple of days ago:

Sorry about it, our assembly factory are still in applying for returning to work from government. The government did not pass it, So at present, the assembly factory can not work now, When we return to work, then I can arrange assembly urgently

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by this unfortunate situation. If the factory does not open next week, we will arrange for another batch to be assembled by our manufacturing partner in Taiwan.
