Note on production / orders / lead time

We are based in the Ardennes, in the South of Belgium.
A 30 minute drive in any direction will take you to the abbeys brewing the finest beers in the world. Orval, Rochefort and Chimay to name just a few. These breweries cherish the ancient art of handwork and attention to detail.

While the Ark does not have anything to do with beers, we honour the work of the monks by offering the same tradition of hand-craft and attention to detail.

Every Ark is constructed with respect for decades or even centuries of craftmanship.
All modules, parts and components are checked, double checked and triple checked.
And like the monks, we prefer not to be rushed.

To limit our ecological footprint, we try to work with local craftsmen as much as possible.
Each of our suppliers takes great pride in their work, and will go out of their way to make sure the part/module they assemble is 100% perfect. The downside of this is that supplies are limited so we can only build a limited amount of consoles (or channels) a month.

Striving for the highest quality, we have no intention to change this production method, and definitely will not set up production in China.

Depending on the amount of consoles we are building when you place your order, it may take some months between order and actual delivery.
