Glendale Recreational Vehicles declared bankruptcy earlier this year, resulting in the sudden unemployment of 200 workers. Ernst and Young appointed trustee and Century Services Inc. will be conducting auctions in Red Deer, Alta. and Strathroy, Ont. on April, 2010.

Glendale RV began manufacturing in 1950 and at one time sold more RVs in Canada than any other manufacturer. Brand names such as Titanium, Golden Falcon, Travelaire and Royal Classic are all produced by Glendale RV.

glendale-body0127Citing high gasoline prices, Canadian RV manufacturer Glendale International has declared bankruptcy.

“The recent economic downturn, the rising Canadian dollar and higher gas prices have had a devastating effect on the recreational vehicle industry in North America,” says Edward Hanna, Glendale chairman and CEO. “Over the past few months the Corporation has undertaken an extensive internal review as well as engaged outside consultants to assist it in reviewing all available options and strategies which it could pursue to rebuild the recreational vehicle division, its primary business. However, given that there does not appear to be a significant rebound of the Canadian RV industry and the commercial structure business for the energy sector in the near term, the Board of Directors determined that a voluntary assignment in bankruptcy was in the best interests of the Corporation’s stakeholders.”
