AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR CUSTOMERS

Gold Tip and Blackhawk wish to thank our customers for their loyalty and their willingness to seek out quality. For that loyalty, Gold Tip and Blackhawk have endeavored to produce products of the highest quality at a fair price. This has been a winning combination for our companies and, as a result, our businesses have grown dramatically.

In order for us to meet the increasing need to continue to supply an expanding worldwide customer base, we have had to make dramatic changes relative to our production capabilities. Not only have we seen exponential growth in the domestic marketplace but also huge growth in our international business as well. To service this growth we have been compelled to upgrade our manufacturing capability. Although we are producing at record levels, it became necessary for us to move into another manufacturing facility because sales have surpassed productions’ ability to keep pace. This move will enable us to better meet the unprecedented increase in growth we are experiencing and stabilize our manufacturing capabilities. With these changes we will be better able to serve our entire customer base in a timelier manner while still being able to keep our high standards for quality products.

As is always the case in any expansion some disruption of product flow has occurred. We continue to ship product daily and are literally working on a 24 hour schedule. Our production routine includes two 12 hour shifts a day to facilitate our focus to satisfy our loyal customer’s needs. We apologize for any inconvenience and are working even harder to provide our customers with the products they desire. We are doing everything possible to maintain our shipping obligations and keep product interruptions to a minimum. In fact, by mid-October we should be back to regular shipping schedules and anticipate no shipping problems going forward.

Neither Gold Tip, Blackhawk nor VaneTec have succumbed to the industry-wide rumors telling of our demise in various forms. In fact, the truth is quite the opposite in that we are experiencing exponential growth much to the dissatisfaction of our competitors.

For the foreseeable future this change to our manufacturing capability will prove beneficial to our customers by enabling us to better supply the increasing demand for our products. As you are aware we have been in an expansion mode for several years with the acquisition of Blackhawk Archery and Vanetec and will aggressively seek to expand with further acquisitions in the future. In addition, we have been able to secure enough carbon fiber to fuel our expansion and product needs for the very optimistic future. We continue to accomplish our goals relative to production and expansion and are working hard to keep the Gold Tip standard of quality.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding and for growing with us into the future.

Goldtip

I've been told that:

By upgrading their manufacturing capability they mean they moved it to Mexico. Actually, I was told they purchased 2 manufacturing plants in Mexico. The problem is, they are experiencing quality issues with their product, which is leading to the product interruptions.

Don't know if it's a new plant or staffing issue, but the new work force is having a hard time keeping the arrows within tolerances so they are unable to get product to market in a timely fashion, or so the story goes.

I know the shop I use is tired of waiting on them and they will probably drop GT. while there the other day they got in several boxes of Bemans. Owner told me that when he sells a bow the customer usually wants some new arrows and GT is not responding to meet his needs.

Why don't you believe me when I say that Walmart bought Gold Tip, Blowtec, and the country of China.

This just in. Walmart also bought IBO, ASA, and all the Pro 3d shooters and are moving everything to China.

Next year, all of the normal people left will only have field archery available in the US.

I also heard that even the Iowa-ProAm has been shanghied to Shang-hai, China, and that the Lancaster shoot will be renamed the "Peeking Shoot" and held in Peking, China. Ching-ting-ping-Ling has been forecast to be the potential winner of both these events.

Hong Kong has bid for taking over the Louisville shoot and is going to re-name it the Hong Kong "Long Chong Shoot".
