Quoted from DCFAN:

If Dutch Pinball wanted to become a regular pinball company rather than just making one game, they really needed to set up their own factory.

That sounds great in principle, but in practice there are a ton of costs and issues involved with running a manufacturing facility that are better handled by someone who specializes in it. CMs will have better access to parts sources, volume discounts and expensive equipment that they can amortize across multiple clients versus you as a single entity could not afford.

Going the CM route was a smart play for Dutch, but it's unfortunate that they chose the wrong manufacturer to do it. I gather ARA is mostly making medical equipment and there are unique issues with pinball manufacture that perhaps they didn't understand or foresee.

You've obviously never met a Danish lawyer.

Dude, it's the Netherlands, not Denmark.

Only problem with that photo - where are the parts they're supposedly installing? All I see is a bunch of guys standing around pretending to screw stuff in. No parts bins.

I dunno, personally I would like to see confirmation from ARA about this productive meeting, given DP's proclivity to bend the truth to suit their needs.

Once bitten, twice shy.

Quoted from eggbert52:

Ridiculous. What have you been bitten on? You haven't lost any money yet.

No, but Jaap has lied over and over. But this time he's totally telling the truth!

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Side note I was looking at the bowling alley mech in the video posted above and thinking what this must have added to the BOM, it’s quite a mech!

I was told the wholesale price on the bowling unit was $1,000. Given the pretty limited payoff that seems like a bad value.
