The company, a separately run subsidiary of Mississauga’s Harper Group, has already ceased operations. It had about 190 dealers throughout North America.

“A secured creditor will be effecting the liquidation of the company’s assets,” states the memo, obtained by todaystrucking.com. “A limited number of finished units may be available for a short period and an alternative supply of parts should come available to customers and dealers early next week as a consequence of the liquidation process.”  Read more HERE
