ByteDelight production planning and status

About ByteDelight

ByteDelight is fulltime run by me, Ben Versteeg, and my wife.


We started ByteDelight in 2014 and been doing that fulltime since 2018.
We have no employees, but we do have a semi-automated production street with pick-and-place machine and reflow oven.

COVID-19 delays

At the moment we’re short of hands, since our 2 kids are at home because of the COVID-19 situation.
We are also getting in about 3x the amount of orders compared to a couple of months ago.

There is a current delay of 1-2 weeks for most orders – please accept our apologies for this.
We’re very thankful for your patience and understanding!

Production and repairs live on YouTube

I often stream live on YouTube doing all kinds of production work and repairs and more.

Planning

The underneath -rough- planning is leading for our work – we really try to prioritize the oldest orders / requests first.
Please know that we have to process messages and order parts every day as well, which is not shown in the underneath list.
