COVID & Deliveries
We’ve been out of stock since the beginning of this year on our regular chalk cream line & were expecting a new production batch to be delivered as early as February.
But this week we received a production warning from our tube manufacturer that there will be no further deliveries until the middle of April due to COVID-related employee illnesses.
Looks like Omicron is really on a big rampage over here in Europe with delays all over the supply chain. In other words: we won’t be able to deliver our “regular” chalk cream in February as planned.
Our new Upsalite-based chalk on the other hand will be delivered earlier than planned. It’s on a truck from Sweden to Belgium as I write this.
We of course want to get our products in your hands as soon as possible. To do this we are taking the following steps:
- Anyone who ordered our seawater-based “regular” chalk during the IndieGogo campaign will be eligible for a free upgrade to upsalite-based chalk, which uses the same seawater-based production process. We will post details later this week.
- We are accelerating the launch of our Upsalite-based chalk. Any existing gym or retail customer will be able to stock up on our Upsalite-based chalk as early as next week.
- We are working on a change in packaging to take out the bottleneck that is causing the production delays to make sure we can produce faster in the future.
