Welland Forge Corp., a Welland, Ontario-based manufacturer of custom metal forgings, filed an NOI on October 27, listing approximately $11.3 million in liabilities. Welland Forge Corp.’s biggest customers have historically been in the automotive industry. Its customers are particularly vulnerable to the volatile nature of the oil and gas industry, and the pandemic has exacerbated that volatility. Earlier in the year, the company suffered the loss of its major customer, which accounted for approximately 65% of the company's sales, to an overseas supplier. Accordingly, the company has identified the need to wind down its operations. The company previously terminated its approximately 60 employees. BDO is the proposal trustee. Counsel is Miller Thomson for the proposal trustee and Madorin Snyder for the companies.
