Fleetwood's OR Plant future still Uncertain

East Oregonian - Pendleton,Oregon,USA
The Canadian RV dealer who tried to buy Fleetwood's La Grande plant has cast a glance at the bankrupt company's Pendleton site.

Craig Little, owner of Arbutus RV & Marine Sales on Vancouver Island, offered $1.8 million to buy the 79,000 square-foot La Grande plant. But Little lost out during a sale hearing and auction May 13 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Riverside, Calif. Ron Nash, owner of the La Grande-based RV maker Northwood Manufacturing, bought the property with a bid of $2.05 million.

Little said he knew Northwood was likely to make the move, but he expressed disappointment as to why. He said it seemed as though Northwood, which already has a plant close to the Fleetwood site, is just trying to keep a competitor from locating nearby.

"I'm not sure if that's the best thing for La Grande, but I understand the business decision," Little said. "We would have liked to have been a serious employer of that area, for sure."
