A lot could be said to sum up the relationship between Eikon Motorsports and Vertical Doors. However, one thing only needs to be said to explain the separation, consistency.
The consistency of product availability is something that every manufacture is bound to struggle with from time to time but when delays become the normal it’s time to change something. Without the control of supply being in our hands we are at the mercy of whoever is manufacturing said products and when you add the lack of accountability and the abundance of greed into the mix, it becomes a ticking time bomb for any company that relies on the products of that manufacturer.
The Fork In The Road
Enough is enough right? Well we certainly think so. We can only sit quietly for so long while we are being sent audio recordings that confirm our previous supplier telling our customers who have been waiting sometimes over 10 weeks that if they cancel their order with us, they can sent them a kit the following day!? How is that possible? Why is that fair?
That is just one small thing on top of many things that led us to this decision to disassociate with Vertical Doors Inc and start manufacturing our own products. Our focus is now on perfecting the manufacturing process just as we have with the installation process. Kits always in stock, Kits that were designed from truly the ground up specifically for the vehicle and not just a slightly modified kit from a previous model.
The other we think most important thing here is that when any company brags about, or uses the “made in USA” claim, they better be damn sure its true.
The Eikon Platform
We have built our door systems on a platform that is not only a two piece system but also a modular system. This means that you’re able to customize certain parts to give our kits, at least the parts that are visible when the door is up, a personal touch to make it look a little more you! We have also removed the visibility of any unsightly bolts that not only contrast against the black subpar painted kit frame but also stand out and just give a tacky “less than perfect/OEM” look and feel.
Our platform is also built to support the future! Its no secret anymore that Eikon is and has designed a completely automated system that not only raises and lowers but also opens and closes your doors from the push of a button. This is what we here at Eikon have dubbed the “V2” model. What makes our platform stand out even more is that once our V2 is released, anyone with our current V1 will be able to very easily “upgrade”.
Down the road when our V2 is ready to be released anyone with our current V1 kit will be able to upgrade with ease. Once you decide the upgrade is for you, we will send our highly skilled installation expert to your vehicle at no cost, 2 hours later your done! Its truly that simple!
Overall, we are extremely excited to be moving in this direction and cannot describe the intense feeling of pride and honor that you all keep choosing Eikon Motorsports for your vertical door modifications.
