[FEB-22] "ELZ_1 play" UPDATE #19 Regarding shipment status

Regarding the status of shipments

Thank you very much for your support.

In my last UpdateBlog, I reported on two schedule plans (current plan and backup plan).
Of the two plans, the current plan, I checked the adjusted parts selected by the LCD window manufacturer and found that the percentage of parts that were OK according to our criteria was about 7%, not much different from what we are using now.

Based on the above results, we moved to the backup plan.

However, the LCD windows that were found to be OK through this verification can be used without any problem, so we will resume production of around 30 ELZ_1 play units.

It will take some time to recondition the LCD windows under the backup plan, but our Chinese supplier will ship new samples to our headquarters in Japan today or tomorrow.

The samples will probably arrive in Japan around Wednesday to Thursday of next week.

We will be able to check the quality immediately, and if there are no quality problems, we will place the order immediately.
According to the local supplier, the manufacturing of LCD windows itself is expected to take about one week.

However, this one week is based on the assumption that everything goes smoothly, and we expect that the new LCD windows will arrive between March 6 and March 13.

Since the assembly of the parts other than the LCD windows can proceed at the plant in Malaysia, we will proceed with the plan to resume production from the week of March 11.

Once this problem is resolved, we expect to be able to produce about 15 units per day.

For the next two weeks, we expect to complete about 20% of the total shipments by using the LCD windows that were previously approved and producing and shipping small quantities at a time.

If we are able to produce 15 units per day starting the week of March 11 as planned above, we will begin shipping from the week of March 18, and hope to complete shipping all orders by the week of April 8.

I am very sorry for any inconvenience and concern this may cause you.
Thank you for your continued support.


We will proceed with production as quickly as possible, but there may be changes to the schedule depending on the situation.

Thank you,

Yu Endo
