BatchPCB moving to OSHPark

Post by Frencil » Mon Apr 22, 2013 9:57 am

Heads up!

BatchPCB is closing for business and is transitioning to OSHPark (http://oshpark.com/).

The shut down and transition schedule is as follows:
  • April 22nd: BatchPCB will not be accepting any more uploads.
  • April 30th: BatchPCB will accept its last orders. All orders in the pipe by midnight will be fulfilled and shipped by BatchPCB staff.
  • Starting May 1st: OSHPark will be taking over BatchPCB operations, including order placement and customer service.
OSHPark has a full write up with details about how to migrate your account, and what you'll need to place new orders: http://batchpcb.oshpark.com/

For more details, check out the sale details page (https://batchpcb.com/the_sale/) or the latest news (https://batchpcb.com/news/) for more information about the coming changes.

At some point during this transition phase, likely around that May 1 milestone, this BatchPCB forum will be closed. It will be archived in a read-only mode so that past conversations are still available in perpetuity but users will be unable to submit new topics.

To all BatchPCB customers: thank you. It was not an easy decision to sell the company, and it may come as a shock and an inconvenience, but we're very confident as we've worked with OSHPark over these past months that the level of service and support they can provide will treat you right.

Sorry to see BatchPCB go! As user #274 I've been there since the early days and BatchPCB has made me a ton of boards over the years.

But, I completely understand - you've got to do what you've got to do. Best wishes in whatever the BatchPCB crew moves on to doing and I just send in my first two orders to OSHPark. Very excited to see that the cost is quite comparable for small orders and that they are made in the USA!

thanks much and 73,
ben, KD5BYB
