Chapter 1064 Sabotage
Arielle paused for a moment and shrugged. “Don’t worry about that. Once the bionic arms are launched, you’ll have your answer.”
Kimi nodded and didn’t ask further. He then held up the bionic arm and started caressing it affectionately. Finally! You’re about to be launched! He was so happy that he started crying tears of joy.
“I’m sorry you had to see that, but I’m just so excited!” Kimi said to Arielle embarrassingly while wiping his tears.
“It’s all right.” Arielle shook her head. “I know how you feel.”
Arielle knew exactly how Kimi felt because she reacted the same way when the robotic pacemaker research succeeded.
Laughing awkwardly, Kimi uttered, “Now we just need to market it and start the manufacturing process. Tomorrow, I’ll personally pay them a visit and instruct them accordingly.”
“Actually, about that…” Arielle trailed off and glanced around the laboratory. After she made sure that the person in charge was not around, she continued, “Regarding the manufacturing process, I’d like to get my friend to do it.”
“Your friend?” Kimi asked, puzzled.
“Yes,” the woman replied with a nod. “This party has a lot of prior experiences with AI technology products. They are one of the best manufacturers in the world. However, the factory is located in Lightspring, Epea. I’ll ship the prototype over directly to them. You just need to prepare a more accurate blueprint for me. By the time they’re done, they’ll send the products back to Chanaea for us.”
“So we’re manufacturing it in Lightspring? May I know the name of your friend’s company?” Kimi queried.
“Sann Group. You should’ve heard about them.” Arielle smiled enigmatically.
“What did you say?” Kimi exclaimed loudly as his eyes widened in bewilderment.
“Hush!” Arielle made a shushing gesture. “As you know, the company is in turmoil now. Besides, there are people who purposely try to stir things up. In order to not let this get sabotaged, I’ve decided to let Sann Group handle the manufacturing process. Hence, you should just keep this piece of information to yourself. As far as the others are concerned, the manufacturing process is being carried out somewhere outside of Jadeborough.”
Hearing that, Kimi nodded profusely.
Sann Group was the best manufacturer in the world for AI technology products. Just the year before, the robotic pacemaker was a groundbreaking achievement, and it took the industry by storm. However, they were known for extremely high asking prices, and they were not into mass production. Hence, only the rich people were aware of the robotic pacemaker.
Although the bionic arm was less significant compared to the robotic pacemaker in terms of saving lives, they were confident that there would be a high demand in the market.
Arielle slightly nodded when she received the blueprint from Kimi. Without wasting a second, she contacted Sann Group right away. With an order from her, the manufacturing process started.
After she dealt with Sann Group, Arielle proceeded to set up a meeting with the designers to decide on the selling price.
After a round of constructive discussion, they agreed to sell it at one hundred and fifty thousand each. That was the lowest price they could go with because the costs were extremely high. Besides, they had invested a lot of time and energy into the early stages of the research.
Once the selling price was set, Arielle stood up and said, “Leave the marketing tasks to the people in the marketing department. All of you should take a break and have a good rest.”
Upon hearing that, everyone in the conference room cheered joyfully.
In the midst of all that, the person in charge was standing by the door outside the conference room. Haha! Laugh while you still can! Wait till you all find out that no one in Chanaea would help with manufacturing! By then, all of you are doomed! He then left and continued bribing the manufacturing companies he had yet to meet.
In the meantime, Jacob had just transferred the first payment to Oliver from his office. That was when the technology department’s person-in-charge paid him a visit. He went there requesting the money needed for bribery purposes. At that instance, Jacob’s heart ached for his pocket.
Never mind, once I get my hands on Moore Group, I will sell off all of its assets. I can recoup the money in no time. He managed to calm his nerves.
