China is definitely in not a good place right now, and if they run out of supplies or take drastic measures to slow down usage of supplies, the tentative date will most likely get pushed back even further.

My client is loving it (as long as it stays in Asia) since they are a true American manufacturer whose raw materials don't even come from China. They are already discussing ramping up manufacturing

Your client sounds short sighted but okay
