The Effect of the Pandemic on CarveWright
As most CarveWright customers know, for the past 14 years, our products have been manufactured in China. With the coronavirus outbreak, our Chinese manufacturing line was essentially shut down. In order to continue selling product and serve our customers, we ordered the parts all be sent to our facility in Houston. For the first time in our company’s history, CarveWright machines are being built in the US.
We are, however, still waiting on some parts to arrive, and have just shipped our last unit in inventory. Our assembly line is working to build new units, but we expect a 2 week lead time on shipping any of those machines. We don’t expect delays on shipping other items such as accessories and parts.
Since we are a manufacturer, we have been designated essential, so our staff is continuing to work everyday. For the the safety of our clients, partners, vendors, and employees we are taking precautions to maintain clean environments and product, such as wearing masks and gloves, and washing our hands regularly.
We hope you understand our situation and have patience as we get this new assembly line running and optimized. You, our customer, are everything to us and we hope you are being safe and continuing to carve.
We will keep you informed of any changes.

Kudos to you and your company and employees, “Made in America” means the world to me. As a Viet Nam vet I will always chose our products over those made over seas if possible. God Bless and stay healthy in this uncertain time. Hope to be at next years Boot Camp. Any possibility of a Boot Camp on the West Coast?.
Love the can American spirit and have decided this will be who I want to do business with. If an order is placed today what would the delivery ETA be?
We are expecting the first machines to be rolling off the line next week, but we have a large backorder to get filled. I would estimate 14 days from date of purchase.
Wishing you the very best in your endeavor! “CarveWright – made in America” sounds good! I am a firm believer in the CarveWright machine, it’s capabilities and the great company support!!!
Best wishes foe good health to all CarveWright employes!
I hope you keep the workers after this #19 is over.
I like the Carver and hope to get to a class next year.
God bless and glad to see them made in America again. Don’t care if it cost a bit more. Let’s keep our own folks employed.
This is big news! I’m very glad to hear that the company is adapting so well due to the recent and unexpected circumstances affecting manufacturing world-wide. Kudos to CarveWright!
