Well... the things you can't count on.
As a reminder, the vast majority of EPIC and Scarlet components are made in the USA and all will be assembled in our Irvine factory. But some components come from offshore.
We just got word that a few key components that we get from Japan will apparently be delayed for obvious reasons.
The most significant are some key parts for Scarlet 8X Fixed lens.
EPIC-Ms are not affected... as we have local inventory.
The 1st (very small) batch of EPIC-X will not affected as we have local parts inventory. We are scrambling to find alternate sources to minimize any delays to continued EPIC-X production.
I am quite sure we are not alone in supply chain issues concerning electronics. The world is very connected.
We'll keep you updated as we get more information. In the meantime, we will continue to hold life as more important than business and pray for the people of Japan.
