HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA - The assets of a defunct juvenile car seat manufacturer are for sale in Nova Scotia. Pride Juvenile Products Inc. has a ``whole flatbed truck'' of plastic molds for parts for car seats, bassinets, gates and other plastic and wood juvenile pro-ducts, said Bev Fowler, a trustee for Halifax-based Doane Raymond Ltd., trustees in bankruptcy and receivership.
Businessman Roy Stevens moved Pride's assets from Ontario to Liverpool, Nova Scotia, but ran out of working capital before he could begin pro-duction, Fowler explained in a telephone interview.
Pride's major creditor, the Nova Scotia government, placed the firm in receivership March 20.
Pride was to subcontract its injection molding needs to outside firms. Stevens could not be reached for comment.
Fowler said the assets were owned by Canhol Inc. before they were acquired by Pride. A U.S.-based company owned the assets before Canhol bought them. He did not have details of the former owners.
Assets include a property lease, production molds, equipment and fixtures, inventory and work-in-progress.
Fowler said his firm will try to sell the assets as a going concern but might auction them if instructed by the provincial government.
