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.”
