In our previous announcement, we revealed our new official VIRPIL Controls production factory - over the previous 2 weeks, we have completed the design for the internal factory layout and have started to purchase the equipment necessary for production including; CNC machines, workstations, shelving systems for warehouse storage, plastic injection molding machines and other tools and accessories.

We have also started the hiring and training of qualified experts to operate the VIRPIL Controls factory. The team is now about 80% completed.

The most important upcoming date in Q2 2018 is 30th April - the opening of the assembly and electronics installation facilities.

Despite devoting a large portion of our effort and time opening the factory, we have not forgotten about the release of our upcoming products:

  • VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle
  • VPC Constellation Delta Grip
  • VPC WarBRD Grip and Base

 

The assembly of these devices will be implemented in our new factory.

The next date of interest is the 20th May - the long awaited release of these new VPC devices!

Finally - as previously announced, we have been working on opening our official VIRPIL Controls EU webstore.

All orders placed with our EU webstore will be dispatched from Lithuania, with VAT and customs already included. DPD will handle the shipment of all orders, and we expect the overall service will be cheaper and faster for our EU customers.

Payment will also be possible via PayPal and all standard online payment cards via a secure Payment gateway.

We also expect to open up our distribution network to include Amazon US in the Summer of 2018 to better serve US VIRPILS!

The VIRPIL Controls EU webstore is scheduled to open on 16th April and will also coincide with the opening of pre-orders for the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle, VPC Constellation Delta Grip and VPC WarBRD Grip and Base.

All pre-orders will receive a discount of 10%, with existing VPC MongoosT-50 owners receiving an upgraded discount of 15%. Of course, all members of the VPC Founder’s Club will retain their 5% lifetime discount - please contact us with your existing VPCFC account details to transfer them to the new VIRPIL Controls EU webstore.

We have more exciting news to follow in Q2 2018 - stay tuned for future announcements!

Thanks,
VIRPIL Controls Team
