Welcome to the forums Sia!

Unfortunately the pattern of behaviour you are experiencing now is probably your best guide to how they’ll behave during the rest of the process.

What you might find is that manufacturers don’t place a high priority on prototypes, because there’s not a lot of money in it for them. If a bigger order comes in, for example, they’ll put it ahead of yours.

For developing a prototype you might favour smaller, more local companies, so you can get the extra attentiveness you need, and ideally someone who you can call or have an in-person discussion with. Especially if you’re going to work with them on version2, version3, etc.

Not sure if that helps, but hope you work it out!
