As I sit here and reflect on 2011 I could not be more proud of what we have accomplished together in just 9 months. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for an absolutely amazing first year.
As 2011 pasts I cannot be anything but excited for 2012 as it is setting up to be a year unlike anyother.
It begins next week with the first of several shipments of long awaited inventory to fill in back orders. During the year I have been working diligently with our suppliers and factories to develop a supply chain to keep inventory in stock during 2012. We will not be perfect, but this is the long term goal.
We launched a KUIU customer photo contest inspired by our In The Field Album where you have the chance to vote on your favorite photos submitted each month. The contest winner will win free gear and be featured in the next KUIU advertisement in Eastman’s Hunting and Bow Hunting Journals. The details will be out next week.
KUIU will be attending it’s first consumer trade shows in 2012, WSF, SCI, PBS and Western Conservation where I am looking forward to introducing KUIU to those who have not had the chance to touch, feel and experience the product line.
Throughout 2012 many new products will be introduced which promise to push the bar on innovation, design, weight and technology. Many of these products you have requested here on the blog and they will be simply amazing.
In 2012 we will develop the very first consumer designed product line with our Day Pack Design & Development Project. This project is for sure to be industry changing.
I also begin working with several new suppliers and technologies in 2012 that will further KUIU’s ability to push innovation in other product categories for Mountain Hunting and pave the way to future KUIU innovation.
The future is incredibly exciting for KUIU and I look forward to experiencing it all with you. We are just getting started!
I wish all of you a very Happy New Year.
