Leo Vince going broke !?!

From moto-station.fr

Le fabricant italien de posts d'échappement moto et scooter LeoVince a fait savoir par voie de communiqué qu'il mettait un terme définitif à ses activités. Déclarée en faillite le 2 octobre, la filiale du groupe Sito avait depuis cessé toute livraison. Et même si la branche américaine de la marque a été rachetée par Geared Up Powersports, son importateur californien, aucun repreneur ne s'est manifesté pour la marque elle-même...

Italian LVince has annouced that they are stopping all activities forever. Bankrupt since october 2nd, the division of Sito Group has stoped all delivery. Even thought the american branch of LV has being bought by Californian GearUp Powersport. Nobody has claim interest for the company

Was the American division just an importer/distributor, or did they do manufacturing here as well?

Update

It's the head office in italy that closing down AND they are not bankrupted, but time are difficult and they are changing the way they do business

Still, production in Poland is still going on and shipping to retailer the same

So not all is lost at this time
