"Hello Heighway Pinball Fans and a Happy Independence day to our American friends
We are pleased to provide our latest update.
We thank you for the new orders. They are very appreciated.
The new Management continues to work with the factory to prepare to ship Alien machines in July. This is our TOP priority. We have made huge progress in the transition in the last 10 days, much of it behind the scenes, and there is much still to do but plans are clear and new processes are bearing fruit.
Our main focus has been to order the parts to make the ordered machines, refine the machine with the US and Welsh based designers and work to take control of the financial aspects of dealing with suppliers and customers around the globe. While all of our newly invested funds are in the UK, banks and payments systems require careful checks and this aspect has been more time consuming than we would like. Refunding customers that need it will pick up in the coming days.
The production schedule draft has also progressed and is close to being finalised. We will contact you individually on this but we do not want to over promise and under deliver.
We are also working to update the website.
We thank you, our customers (and potential customers) for your patience and thank all our staff, contractors, distributors and suppliers for your hard work in enabling the turn around. We have much more to do but are encouraged.
Thank you all for your time and we will be in contact next week with another update from Heighway Pinball."
