Fixe-fader starts making the Alien after reaching an agreement with the widow of David Wagoneer

By EDITORIAL BARRABES.COM - Wednesday, June 29, 2011 - 3 comments Share90
The guidelines David Wagoneer, inventor of the Aliens, left his widow before she died were clear: the company to continue with making the aliens would have to be of medium size, would have to continue with the name, the same philosophy and he performed precise manufacturing, including machinery and raw materials. Finally, after 1 ½ years of negotiations, Fixe-Faders has obtained the patent, the machinery and all the knowledge transmitted and begins manufacturing

There have been many major brands of both American and European material that have sought a patent for the legendary Alien Cams. But the guidelines that the inventor and manufacturer, David Wagoneer, left his wife before his death were unclear, and all aimed at the spirit of your device is not lost. Thus, to avoid the loss of the name and got a fabrication more industrial arguably less careful, the company proceeded with the patent should be small to medium size, never an industry giant, but with extensive experience in factory and manufacturing of high quality. The name should be retained, and the granting of the patent must include machinery and knowledge. Even suppliers of raw materials, carefully selected, should remain the same. In short: Wagoneer that he wanted to continue making exact replicas and perform the same level of reliability and good work he performed. And after eighteen months of negotiations, the former U.S. manufacturing resumes at Barcelona, ​​to get the company Fixe-Faders the patent after considering the widow who was the most suitable plant for this. In fact, the whole machinery moved from Colorado to St. Quirze Besora, and Nadia, the widow of David Wagoneer has been two months in Catalonia teaching all the secrets and tricks of manufacture. From the workshop Fixe-Faders tell us that is quite manual and craft, which was already known by thousands of users worldwide Alien, who appreciated the constructive excellence of these devices and their effectiveness on the wall. Once past the learning period, and to guarantee the appearance of your device cam by using the same machinery and even the same original raw material, soon will begin manufacturing the end-user. It is expected that the first Alien in September are on sale in the international market. May be purchased in blue, green, yellow, gray and red.

At first I thought it might have something to do with JP.Franklin who popped into this thread:

Though he is in Chile and this outfit seems to be in Spain.

It will be curious to see how this goes. One prospective buyer looked at the design and manufacturing and came away with the conclusion labor costs of the existing design might be such that it isn't financially worth producing. But, possibly they got it all at a price that mitigates those concerns or maybe the location of manufacture will change again after a period of time.

LMAO!

Kevin D walked into the Gear Express about two weeks with several hand fulls of his collection of originals. Putting them up for $60 a piece in sets of 5 or so. I asked why he was doing such a foolish thing. His answer only after I swore to secrecy.... "Fixe is mak'n em and they will be out within the month."

Me and Trevor's mouths immediately dropped to the floor shaking our heads in happiness.

Let's see if a consistent QA process will ensure a safer product. Hope so.

It's "Express" in and out at cheap prices. It's a joke dude. Pheeeeeeeeeeeew over your head it went. Figures.

BTW, aren't you the Mannerism Market dude that dropped his chicki partner last season above C-Falls where she busted her ankle way bad and it entailed a partial rescue. Maybe you shouldn't of been using any of them recalled faulty Aliens thinking they'd worked in the ice.

PS: Retard.... How funny.

Spain? Cool. Soon they will be as widely available as Boreal shoes.


Kidding. It's good to see that the lady found a buyer for the company that will keep the product alive.
