This is still part of the legal process they have to go through....

All the info I have from speaking with Michael Salven and the German importer is that everything will be up and running with the new operation in the next few weeks.

So, I guess I am behind times. I guess that is what I get for switching to offroad since on-road is dead around here. I hope Serpent gets their 1/8th scale buggy going. It is obvious that you can not survive in this hobby just selling on-road cars.

Serpent has been going through some changes lately and many rumours have been singing around, so time to give some facts.





The facts

Serpent Headquarters remains based in Heemstede, Holland, at a smaller location than before.. At Serpent head-quarters general project-management, r&d, marketing and sales are being done. Michael Salven works on all designs of current and new projects. Billy Easton works on r&d too, but then based in the USA.

Serpent has moved all the production to Asia. In the last 5-10 years already most parts were made in Asia and we focused production in Holland on injection moulding of all nylon parts, logistics and packing of car-kits and spare parts. To make things more efficient and flexible we decided to move all production to one expert production location in Asia. This facility is fully operational and kits and parts are made available from there.

Before the main warehouse was in Holland. In the new structure it is managed in 3 locations SerpentAsia, SerpentAmerica and SerpentEurope ( in the making). Ofcourse the network of Serpent Distributors (over 45 worldwide) will continue to operate as before.

Serpent is working on some exciting new projects, which will be revealed in the time to come, we will keep you posted, as usual. Some more info on the development of the Serpent company will follow too.

Yes, (as mentioned begin august) the production of the 720 and 960 goes on but what about the 710 en 950 models, will the parts still be produced ?

The S120 is mentioned as wel in the story of Baar but no S400 and I have heard it won't be back, not under the Serpent brandname. And on RedRC we could read the Durango boys founded their own company so no electric Buggy in devellopment. And what has hapened with their 1:24 model?

Still a lot of questions unanswered.....

Kyosho and others sell far too many of those things for it to be a joke.
