Just a guess. It could also be that John wants to keep his customers wanting more...
I could be completely wrong on this but I believe that the vast majority of the manufacturing process is in the design and the master mold or whatever they may call it. However after that the more you run the lower your costs. That is one of the reasons why I do not understand how they run the business.
