Everyone say hi to Daniel! Our new manufacturer who's just jumped on board the Flintu team.
He visited our Sydney shores last weekend to talk all things prototyping and rollout for our new Failsafe product launching later this year.
We asked him a few questions so we could get to know him better.
Is this your first time to Australia?
No I actually studied and lived in Sydney for 5 years! I love it here. It's my home away from home.
So where is your factory, where does the magic happen?
I have 3 factories, one in Shenzen (China) one in Ho Chi Minh city (Vietnam) and one in Taipei (Taiwan). Flintu's latest product will be manufactured in Shenzhen.
What kind of products do you usually manufacture?
A range of things from cables and battery-banks, to smart watches and onboard camera for the automotive industry.
Have you ever worked on a Kickstarter project before?
Yes, quite a few actually. It's a great initiative which jump starts many careers in the product industry. I wasn't lucky enough to work on Plan V but am excited to be working with Flintu on this next chapter!
What's your favourite food?
Tiramisu. Always Tiramisu.
Why are you excited to work with Flintu?
I think it's a really fantastic product, and nothing on the market is doing quite what the Flintu boys are doing. Plus these guys are good people. They're great to work with! I have to say that, you're interviewing me right?
