Made in Europe

I am doing everything to ensure RotoWallet will really be “made in Europe“. Not just finalised and assembled by me here in Slovenia but I do not want to order parts from China or any third world countries.

Why? Because I am allergic to seeing “made in China” on almost anything I pick up and very often it could have easily been made in Europe. Even more so when it comes to fruits and vegetables. I do not understand why do we have to import garlic from China as it grows locally and plums from Argentina? Makes absolutely no sense!

Using local production facilities and knowledge helps local economy and protects the environment. It also makes it easier to coordinate everything, have personal contact with suppliers and allows a faster reaction time in case of problems.

The biggest challenge was finding tiny titanium screws at a reasonable price, but I found a Czech company where they are able to produce such small products and they will deliver me titanium parts I need.

Well one part is not from Europe, but from USA. It’s a retaining ring made by Rotor Clip and ordered through their European partner in Czech Republic. But I sure hope to sell also some wallets back to the USA inspite of the fact you do not need coin storage πŸ˜‰

One thought on “Made in Europe”

  1. I just found out that the special Titanium compound Ti 6Al 4V (or Grade 5 Titanium) I will be using is melted in the United States of America. But it will be milled for me in Czech Republic. This means another USA – EU cooperation for RotoWallet. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed also for the other way around πŸ™‚
