New Year. New tools!
Posted: Dec 31 2014
We’re at the end of another year but still at the beginning of the Wolffepack story. There has been so much exciting progress in the last part of 2014 with so much more to come in 2015. We’d like to wish you and yours a very Happy New Year!
In the past few days we have seen the completion of the build of the tools for injection moulding the hard components. Seeing the physical form taking shape in these metal tools is really exciting! In the photo is a good illustration of this stage of development. This photo is of one of the moulds for the Wolffepack handle. This tool is to add the textured rubber overmould that makes the handle easy to grip and feel good in the hand. If you look closely you can see the imprint of the Wolffepack logo in reverse in the surface of the metal.
We are about to produce a small batch of components in a scale manufacturing environment, breaking new ground again! We can then check and test these components and once we’re happy we will start the full production run. To see these tools in existence as hard, physical objects is a real reminder of how far we have come.
Off to Germany in February!
We are delighted to be exhibiting the Wolffepack at its first trade show at ISPO in Munich, Germany between 5th and 8th February 2015. ISPO is one of the world’s largest shows for the sports and outdoor markets, with over 80,000 visitors and exhibitors in 18 halls. It is huge! It’s going to be a great opportunity to introduce the Wolffepack and its revolutionary concept to a wider market and an international audience. The stand space is booked and we are busy designing the graphics to help us stand out. We will be in the same hall as The North Face, Berghaus, Vaude etc so we are in very good company! If you are in the region of Munich or Bavaria on those dates let us know! We would love to see you.
Introductory offer for pre-orders!
We have opened the website for preorders (shipping in May 2015) with a really attractive introductory offer. For those early adopters making a preorder we are offering a 20% reduction off the recommended retail price (normally £125 GBP). So for an introductory period the price will be at £99.95 GBP. We wanted to show that we really appreciate the early interest and support we are getting.
New Year’s Eve
It has been an incredible few months. We are seeing the Wolffepack come to life with the help of a successful campaign Kickstarter and a fantastic community of supporters. Thank you for all the interest and encouragement! We can’t wait to see what the new year holds.
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A GREAT 2015 TO ALL!
