Epox closing business in Europe

Motherboard maker Epox is closing its European office. FUD Zilla claims the new CEO of Epox made a couple of bad moves which caused a total failure on the European market:
First the boss decided to move Epox away from the "expensive" and high quality board market and then he decided to start making cheaper boards with cheap capacitors.

This lead to a few capacitor scandals and quite a few RMAs. After that he decided to return to the high end board production, but people had already lost trust in high-end Epox motherboards and the sales channel was already destroyed.

It was too late to repair the damage and Epox is shutting down its European office in a few days.
