Flat rate assembly service no longer available
« on: August 28, 2012, 09:23:02 am »
We have over the past few years offered assembly services at a fixed price to our customers. In offering this service I felt it might grow to some volume. And I erred in charging a flat rate that was too low, we come short of covering our labor cost by about 25% with every kit we build. Even at that giveaway price we see maybe one assembled kit order per month. The only staff qualified to do assembly is the product development dept., and they are far too busy these days to fit that in.

So we will be ending the flat rate assembly prices as of today.

I should add that the notion that almost all the kits that go out of here are built by the owner is exactly what we are about. You guys rock!
