Post SCX new life in Ibi, Spain

Thanks to SlotCar Today for this News, taken from their Web Site http://www.slotcar-today.com/en/noti...-spain-349.php

See the NEW production facility HERE

Definitive agreement with Educa Borras
The new SCX facilities in Ibi, Spain.
Educa Borras will transfer to its affiliate “Fabrica de Juguetes” in Ibi, Spain, the production of Scx in Spain. So manifest to SLOTCAR TODAY, Jorge Arceo, new SCX Marketing Manager in Educa Borras.

Educa Borras, that since last April 1 took over the marketing managing of SCX, decided to relocate to the facilities of its subsidiary "Fabrica de Juguetes" in Ibi, the whole structure of SCX. There, he has all the productive capacity in order to manufacture in short term all the products that at the moment are under development in China, but for the moment Educa Borras will remain the production in the Asian country.

This confirms officially that Educa Borras has now the rights to manufacture the license Scalextric* for Spain and SCX to be commercialized internationally.
According to Jorge Arceo, it is still too early to make known the commercial policy of the new era of SCX, but prior to the end of the month, we will know more in depth which will be the objectives of SCX in the different aspects of the targeted range in the 2012 catalog.

*(Remember that SCX is marketed in Spain and Mexico as “Scalextric” as a result of historically acquired rights, while Scalextric Hornby brand is marketed in Spain under the Superslot name.)

This looks like some good news, for both SCX and Spain.

I don't see any BAD news, but what's the GOOD news? We already knew that SCX was being bought out and that production would move to Spain. So, the good news is that the previous news is still accurate?

The good news is the building looks sound, and the lawn never needs mowing:

Yep, I'll take it. Lack of bad news, in this case, is good news!

Default Happy to see something

Hi guys, I race SCX digital as well as some of my friends and at least this Board has some news and activity, SCX Worldiwide hasn't mentioned this info yet. So I'm glad you have.
Thankyou

Educa Borras appears to be a board game publisher based in Barcelona. I searched the name and here it is:

http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgamepu...7/educa-borras

"Educa Borras S.A. was created in 2001 by the fusion of two historical companies in the puzzle and game market: Borras Plana, founded in 1894, and Educa Sallent, founded in 1967."

From a product review on Amazon:

"1500 piece puzzle. Educa puzzles are manufactured to the highest European standards in Barcelona, Spain using heavy "green board". This ensures a perfect fit between pieces and creates virtually no puzzle dust. Product includes special glue to display puzzle when completed, and a "Lost Puzzle Piece Guarantee", Educa will replace any missing or lost puzzle piece directly to the customer. Assembled size 33 1/2 " X 23 1/2". Ages 9 and up. "

So it seems the company has high standards, produces good products, and stands behind them. When you combine that with the already-known strengths and weaknesses of SCX slots, it sounds good. Hopefully Educa Borras can employ a good engineering staff to improve and rationalize the SCX line. Moving production to Spain from China could be a challenge, but we shall see what results.

These are Educa Borras puzzles:

That seems to be a quite exotic digital system encompassing the slot racer statue in front of the building ... a sign of things to come?
