Did Fruehauf Go Bankrupt

Did Fruehauf Go Bankrupt?

We often get asked whether Fruehauf Trailers of Grantham went Bankrupt?  Well the Grantham Tipping Trailer Manufacturer Fruehauf did go Bankrupt in about 2003 and again in about 2010 and technically I believe they did go into a Court appointed administration in September 2021. Fruehauf were running on empty with serial entrepreneurs picking them up, running them lean and then bad luck happens. Fruehauf shut down for very long periods during COVID taking advantage of Furlough to try and weather the storm. Then a management punch up internallly led to a court order that closed them and allowed another buyer in.
