We are very sad to announce that CaseLabs and its parent company will be closing permanently. Wir wurden in Konkurs und Liquidation gezwungen. Die Tarife haben eine wichtige Rolle gespielt, indem sie die Preise um fast 80% erhöht haben (teilweise aufgrund von damit verbundenen Engpässen), was unsere Margen stark beeinträchtigte. The default of a large account added greatly to the problem. It hit us at the worst possible time. We reached out for a possible deal that would allow us to continue on and persevere through these difficult times, but in the end, it didn’t happen.

We are doing our best to ship as many orders as we can, but we won’t be able to ship them all. Parts orders should all ship, but we won’t be able to fulfill the full backlog of case orders. We are so incredibly sorry this is happening. Our user community has been very devoted to us and it’s awful to think that we have let any of you down. There are over 20,000 of you out there and we are very grateful for all the support we have received over the years. It was a great journey that we took together and we’re thankful that we got that chance.

We understand that there will likely be a great deal of understandable anger over this and we sincerely apologize. We looked at every option we had. This is certainly not what we envisioned. Some things were just out of our control. We thought we had a way to move forward, but it failed and we disabled the website from taking any more orders.

It was a privilege to serve you and we are so very sorry things turned out this way.

Man sollte nichts übersetzen, was man nicht versteht!

2018-08-12, 11:11:26
dann nenn es von mir aus bankrott !!! man man man

2018-08-14, 07:33:12
Ich vermute, er meint den von dir übersetzten Satz. "Tariff" = "Zoll".
Es geht hier um die Stahl/Alu-Zölle in Amiland.

Der Markt ist mit Sicherheit eh schwierig da die Sachen ja recht speziell und teuer sind.

Mal abwarten was draus wird...

2018-08-14, 11:54:20
Sehr schade. Das war so das beste was man kriegen konnte.
Habe mir noch schnell ein SMA8 A bestellt.

2018-08-14, 13:53:16
Habe den Hersteller nie bewusst wahrgenommen, kenne lediglich das ein oder andere Gehäuse vom Sehen.

2018-08-15, 20:43:36
Kenne die Firma überhaupt nicht.

Ich hab's tatsächlich bekommen.

Aber zusammenbauen werde ich das wohl erst am WE frühestens.

Das hier? http://www.caselabs-store.com/magnum-sma8-a-revision-customizable/

SCheiße ist das teuer. :eek:
Sieht geil aus, aber scheiße ist das teuer.

Eigentlich ungewöhnlich, daß so ein Premiumhersteller von Zöllen tangiert wird. War wohl wirklich wie sie schreiben zu einem blöden Zeitpunkt.

Ja ein SMA8 A in gunmetal. In meiner Konfig mit allem drum und dran leider vierstellig geworden der Preis. :redface:

Schade um Caselabs. Mein Mercury S5 mag ich auch sehr :)
Mal schauen, ob ich mir noch schnell ein Pedestal dafür bestelle...

Ich werde neidisch aufmerksam Dein Basteltagebuch verfolgen. :)

Aber was hast Du an den ordentlichen dicken Gummifüßen auszusetzen? Sehen doch ordentlich und haltbar aus? Und zerkratzen nicht das Parkett.

Ich finde die optisch nicht so ansprechend, immerhin steht die Kiste bei mir am Tisch und da sehe ich die Füße immer.
Die neuen sind von unten auch gummiert, da passiert nichts. Hier mal im Vergleich:

Vollaluminium sind viel schicker.

Gute Nachricht. Ich bin zwar etwas skeptisch, aber dennoch: Gute Nachricht.

What happened to CaseLabs?
California-based CaseLabs unfortunately went into bankruptcy back in 2018 due to circumstances regarding tariffs in the US. CaseLabs enthusiast Emil Rytterstedt bought the rights in 2021. We are now working to resurrect the brand and to start manufacturing cases again in Sweden.

When will I be able to buy a CaseLabs case again?
While there is no official date yet, we want you to know that we are working hard on getting things running. We have started going through all the blueprints and things are looking good so far. We want to make sure that QC is up to CaseLabs standards when it comes to our manufacturing partner. We’ll most likely start selling spare parts to begin with, with complete cases following soon after.
We highly recommend subscribing to our newsletter below to get updates on our progress.

Uiuiui, da komme ich vielleicht doch noch an ein SMA-8A :up:

Und mal wieder eine Email von Caselabs :)

A new start

Friends, fans, and former customers of CaseLabs, I have the great pleasure to announce that CaseLabs is officially back after the bankruptcy in 2018! We are now under new management and have re-located to Sweden, but don’t worry, everything you knew and loved about CaseLabs will remain the same. We will carry on the spirit of CaseLabs as best as we can while updating existing models and bringing new models to the market.

Let me introduce myself very briefly: My name is Emil, I’m almost 37 years old, I live in Sweden, and I am the new owner of CaseLabs since October 2021. Ever since I first heard that CaseLabs went bankrupt I’ve been trying to buy CaseLabs' intellectual property. After a long and drawn-out process the trustee and I finally came to an agreement in the spring of 2021 and the purchase was finalized in October 2021. Since then Daniel and I have been working on bringing CaseLabs back to life again.
Here's how we will unfold this

Daniel and I want to start slow, and not bite off more than we can chew. The ressurection of CaseLabs will happen in several stages. We've recently launched our new website which will be followed by a webshop where we will offer a selection of freshly made spare parts and accessories that are in high demand by our former customers. This is what we refer to as our “soft-launch” of our webshop.

The “hard-launch” of our webshop will happen when we feel that we have manufacturing, quality control, logistics etc under control. With the “hard-launch” we'll once again offer all our case models along with all spare parts and accessories. Basically, we'll operate just as before the bankruptcy. Since we’re now based in Sweden, we’re looking for partnership for the North American market to lower the shipping costs for out over seas customers. Until we've partnered up with a manufacturer we'll look into off-setting the higher shipping cost to North America with a discount.

Daniel and I are two very passionate individuals when it comes to CaseLabs. We are not content with just keeping things ”as is” but want to develop CaseLabs as a brand and expand our product range. I’ve already talked about the planned multi-stage launch of our webshop - continuing from that we will focus on updating our existing models to ”Revision A” with new functionalities and modern compatibility similar to when the SMA8 re-launched as the SMA8-A.

When our existing models are updated we’ll start developing brand new models for our line-up. The team has already expressed their desire about doing a SFF model around 7-10L or ~15L. We also have ideas that don't revolve around just updating and designing cases but want to get as close as possible to offer a complete solution for everyone putting together a new system.

We are currently working on a road map to better visualise and communicate our plans for CaseLabs. With the road map you can follow the progress for the different stages and get an aproximate time frame for when the current stage is set to finish and when we're ready to move to the next stage on our road map.
Upcoming survey

We’re in the process of making a web-based survey that we will send out to everyone subscribing to our newsletter. The survey is aimed at current owners of a CaseLabs’ case who needs spare parts. We hope that the survey will give us valuable data about which spare parts for what models are in demand so we can plan accordingly. We ask you all to please help us by taking your time and filling out the survey. We estimate that the survey will be sent out within a week or two after this newsletter.

Daniel and I are optimistic about the future of CaseLabs, and I hope that you all will follow along on this incredible journey that CaseLabs is about to embark on.

Until then, I wish you all the best!
