    II had an email from Rob Miller last week answering an inquiry about what units would be built when. He indicated they were getting geared up to begin.

    Thank you, thank you for sharing. Our black tank failed (our fault) in February and our new tank order was caught in the March Northwood/Covid19 close down. So good to know there is relief in sight!

    NORTHWOOD IN LA GRANDE WILL RESUME OPERATION, MONDAY, MAY 18TH.

    Northwood Investments, parent company to both La Grande, Oregon-based RV manufacturers, Northwood Manufacturing (NW), and Outdoors RV (ORV) are pleased to announce that they are resuming initial production, Monday, May 18th.

    NW and ORV have formulated a Three-Phase Plan for the reopening. Phase One included forming and implementing a series of safety steps and precautions to give their employees the safest work environment possible. These steps included: preparing to take each employee’s temperature with a touchless, thermal thermometer; the implementation of a daily employee safety survey; and the availability of various Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including face masks, disposable gloves, disinfectant, and hand sanitizer.

    Company CEO Craig Orton stated, “Through this entire ordeal, our employees’ health and safety has been and will continue to be our number one priority here. We want to be sure to protect all our team members while they are at work as well as our community as a whole.”

    With the appropriate safety measures now in place, NW and ORV will begin Phase Two today, May 12th, with Production Managers reaching out to employees via phone and Employee Text Alert App to recall the first wave of workers to re-start the manufacturing lines. When asked about resuming production, Orton stated, “Given everything we have all been through the past few weeks and months, it just feels great to simply say, ‘We’re Back!’”

    Phase Three, the return of the balance of the workforce, is expected to come within the next few weeks. Northwood Investments CFO Cerise Smallwood commented, “It is our intention and desire to get everyone back to work as soon possible. We are a family here and we truly miss every, single person.”

    To assist in keeping clear lines of communication, NW/ORV are asking that every employee please call their respective plant office this week beginning Wednesday, May 13th, between the hours of 8 am and 12 pm and ask to speak to the Production Staff about when they are scheduled to return to work.

    NW/ORV will pass along more scheduling information as it becomes available via Elkhorn Media and the Employee Text Alert App.
