Looks like Oookworks may have been bought by someone?
Saw this and posted the same question in the random thread. Great if someone is running with this as I’d be interested in a new inner.
Yep would be great if so. I do feel that, if it has been bought by someone, they should make it clear that that's the case. Will be interesting to see if what they start producing is of a similar quality to what they used to.
I think its still Sean. I don't see how someone would buy a brand so damaged with so many customers who lost money. Furthermore if someone had bought it, the under new management statement would be key to rectifying the trust issues. Time will tell which I guess
Looks like it. Wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole though considering he probably still owes a bunch of people money
The website has updated. Selling stuff sacks only atm.
I appreciate all that’s been said and done. Sean has never done me any harm, but then I never gave him that opportunity. We all make mistakes, and many will take wrong turns in life.
I understand bitterness by anyone who was given poor service, I would probably be just as unforgiving. However, when someone is trying to turn back on course, they will need support to maintain it.
It's a new owner last 2 months according to screenshot of message on a FB group.
Two things from the site make me think it's not under new management
"I have some exciting new ultralight products, new to OookWorks (things that I’ve been testing in Wales and Scotland for the last two years)."
"Exciting times as most of the family are involved now. Hope you’ll stick with us."
But don't know, they just seem like strange comments from someone who is new to the business to me
To my recollection the previous problems were chiefly an inability to meet / produce customised orders. It would appear that the (New) business model has changed to one of producing stock items for sale rather than taking customised / bespoke orders. .... hopefully this will alleviate the vast majority of previous concerns.
Time will tell.
I think it’s someone new from the spiel.
mdf /Plywood templates For inners Is not a good investment for me.
Silnylon stuff sacks is a poor starter offering IMO
hope it works though
I’ve ordered some kit from them today.
TBH I don’t want any UL kit, it’s all flimsy and ‘orrible, but I would support any of you if you were in the same boat.
Give the fella a chance... unless you’ve been right royally rogered by him, then I understand
It's a different person now.
You can likely find Sean on Facebook if you want to contribute
Then a new business has my business - happy days
***It’s a new business***
Just checked my paypal payment
WildFire Expeditions Ltd
There we go then
Companies house for the above.
Let’s hope he can make a go of it. I hope Sean is ok too.
It would be brilliant if he can make it work, especially with Sean’s designs which were excellent.
Perhaps a solid inner for the X-mid would be a popular item, may be years quicker than DROP.
