Could you possibly outline a timeline based on time from travel restrictions are lifted? Looking at the numbers it would seem that China is now a safer place to be than for example Sweden. So I assume apart from the risk of travelling in itself, the risk of contracting the virus will actually be lower in China than in Sweden. However there is no timeline as to when foreigners will be allowed back into China, and so I assume any kind of timeline is really based on when travel restrictions lift on China's end or Sweden's end.Apart from extrusion & CNC plant, everything else is pretty much set (i.e. electronics, sheet metal, packaging, etc etc). We're trying to get super-specific anodizing samples from extrusion / CNC candidates right now, so that we can narrow down the factory list asap (it's quite large).
If anyone here has experience with anodizing specification, feel free to share what you know. I feel that Alumunium Association designation (AA-M42-C21-....etc) fits our needs perfectly, but perhaps there's something even better when dealing with Chinese factories?
So to not dissappoint, I think it would be good for us to understand how long likely things will take after the factory visit. Is it likely that you will need multiple visits? etc.
I know you are aiming for August/September, but if travel restrictions are still in-place then, then I assume you cannot have produced it by then, outline based on +2 months from the first visit, etc, may prevent future dissapointment.
