In September we finalized some changes to the Ergo Spout design which were necessary for manufacturing. This is a normal part of the process of working with a factory. They have to consider things like how the product will release from the mold and whether the plastic will cool evenly. All of the tweaks were pretty minor and the main features of the Ergo Spout will remain the same. Now that we have a design that everyone agrees is manufacturable, we have moved onto the tooling phase. This takes 50-60 days.
We just got photos of the mold thus far. It’s so exciting to see the progress. The top one is the main part of the Spout and the bottom one is the lid.
