NuWa Industries to Cease Production, Considering Closure
NuWa will accept build orders until Sept. 15 and fill orders through Christmas, Mitchell wrote. He could not be reached for comment by RV PRO.
“Whether this termination of production is temporary or permanent, I do not yet know,” he said in the letter. “This decision goes against management’s desire to retain jobs for our dedicated employees and our community, but shareholders cannot continue to fund the production inefficiencies.”
Mitchell said there is a possibility NuWa's HitchHiker line could be produced by another manufacturer.
“We continue to explore having limited HitchHiker models produced to our specifications by another high-end manufacturer,” he wrote. “But if you want a new HitchHiker built exactly to your specifications, that order needs to be in place quickly or we will respectfully not accept it. We will accept orders only as long as we feel they can be completed by Christmas or before, and our present lead time is running 12 weeks.”
Several NuWa dealers interviewed for this story said they were unaware of Mitchell’s online letter.
