2014 – The Start of Something Special

By December 24, 2014Uncategorized

whole treeWe’re coming to the end of the 2014, but for us all in the CEL UK office, we feel we’re just at the beginning of something really, really amazing.tree2

This year has been a hard slog – our tiny team has worked tirelessly to launch one of the world’s most anticipated 3D printers to market, with pretty pleasing results so far.

We’re delighted to have secured support from some of the UK’s best names in the 3D printing and technology industry; from Farnell Element 14, to Maplin, Novatech, CREAT3D, PrintMe3D, 3D-PrintWorld and The Gadget Show to name but a few.

Internationally, Robox is getting as much acclaim as it is in the UK, with the likes of Stampede, Conrad Group, Dynamism and Wiltronics all stocking the Robox.

Coverage of the product to date has been tremendous, so a big shout out to Diffusion PR for their help in this.

Who’d have thought just over a year ago that the likes of the Daily Telegraph, the Times, Yahoo! and GQ Magazine would all be recommending the Robox as the ultimate buy this Christmas?
When we look back across the year it’s hard to take it all in.

Over the past 12 months we have appeared in 81 publications both online and in print, we’ve successfully completed our Kickstarter campaign with 3 times the expected funding, our UK team has doubled in size, we’ve moved to an office and warehouse twice the square footage of our original office, we’ve attended three of the world’s most popular trade shows and we already have around 6,000 Robox units in circulation across the world.tree3

So what’s for 2015? Next year looks to be a busy one – we will be focussing our attentions on fine-tuning the software, training more staff so that we can provide a top notch service to our new and existing customers and making new developments with the hardware as we move towards making the Robox a multi-fu nctional unit.

All that remains to be said is a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has bought a Robox so far, and by doing so, supporting us and everythingwe stand for. We appreciate that you have spent your hard earned cash on a constantly evolving and ever-changing purchase, and in doing so you have taken one step into the future.

And finally, we would like to wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR, here’s to a great 2015.

    I firmly believe that 2015 will be the coming of age for the Robox project, with the little niggles ironed out and improvements in support and feedback. I think it’s quite amazing what you managed to achieve with such a small team initially, and with the bolstered numbers I’m confident 2015 is going to be your year!

    Good luck and best wishes to you all. Thanks for making my home proto-typing dreams an affordable reality!
