A vital key to the success of the Whistle Racer brand is the attention to detail.  Once a year, one of the directors visit the factory in Shantou (China) to personally carry out a spot quality control check. This year we upgraded the factory assembly line and appointed a new company to manufacture the bearings.  The bearings are an integral part of the flywheel, which ensures smooth operation of the product.  A visit was also done at the "metallic plating" factory.  This was an impressive visit...the factory was spotless!  They can plate over 20 000 Whistle Racers a day!  Overall, the Quality tests were passed with flying colours!!  Thank you and well done team!!
