When we first started this camper building project we planned to outsource a good bit of the production. We'd focus on our core competencies of machining and robot automation for the smaller aluminum parts and have other folks do our tube and panel cutting, our welding, and our shipping. My how our perspectives have changed. It turns out that if you want to find better ways to do things, you kind of have to do it yourself. So that's what we've done. And it's exciting.
The downside is that setting up a lot of new processes takes time, so we're about eight weeks behind where we'd hoped to be at this point. The upside, and it's a huge upside, is that we now own almost all of the processes required to build the GFC Platform camper. Owning these processes lets us maintain quality but the real advantage is that it allows us to innovate products at a much faster and more cost effective pace. So while this has caused us to get behind in the beginning, most folks will end up getting a better camper sooner because of it. It's exciting times here at Go Fast Campers. So let us give you a quick tour.
So now that we're just about done with version 1.0 of the factory, we're ready to start churning out a whole bunch of these nifty little high-performance campers. In the past two months we've tooled up in a very serious way. And when you get your camper, we think you'll be glad we did. So stay tuned for weekly shop updates... and stand by for action.
