Time for a quick (overdue) update.
Since January, It has been extremely busy for both Emma and myself. Emma has fitted in very well and in a short time has been brought up to speed with everything and between us, we have been planning the future of the company.
The company has to plan to be able to survive in a much more difficult and uncertain climate, with the US elections and the possibility of the UK leaving the European Union, plus an increase in competition.
We had a successful launch of Aqua and Indigo before Christmas to keep the Revo interest there and we have two more planned this year, Salmon and Mint. We are also working on a permanent income stream to ensure we can meet the demands of our serious puzzle collectors/enthusiasts. This is an exciting development which will ensure the long-term future of the puzzles.
At the same time, I have been working evenings and weekends on the R2's. The Mazes are due to be anodized now they have been engraved and I am finishing of the backs to be anodized. The centres and bars are in progress and should be complete by the end of the month.
Once the anodised parts come back, we can then assemble ready for shipping. The only thing needed is each number to be engraved onto the edge of the maze.
Once we have these out and get feedback, we will then adopt the design for Venus that is now programmed for the maze.
Hope to keep in touch through Emma, who is slowly getting to know each of you.
