Default FlisKits sold, should reappear in near future

Jim Flis announced today on Facebook that he had sold FlisKits:

"Well, papers have been signed, so I can proudly announce that FlisKits has a new home!

The materials, inventory, trademarks and all kit documentation/designs are being acquired by Ray DiPoala and Eric Henderson!

I am thrilled to know our product line will continue and will do my best in the coming months and years to help Ray and Eric get the most out of their investment!

Keep watch for an announcement for Ray and Eric in the coming weeks!

Thank you all, again, for your support and good wishes over the years. Time to get excited again!"

I hope they keep the Fliskits name. DiPoalaHendersonKits doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue ...

I hope Jim still designs for them, with Kit production off his plate he may be more creative than ever.

I don't think I know Ray and Eric. Have they traded under another name?

Obviously HendersonDipaola kits sounds much better.

To answer some of the questions above

Name will remain Fliskits
Jim will be designing new kits along with Ray and myself

Stay tuned for future developments. Please be patient during the transition period. Jim left us some pretty big shoes to fill and we want to ensure that we live up to expectations. Your constructive input is greatly appreciated. As we ramp up kit production we will keep you updated on the social forums
