ARI in Kennett and in Paragould are in trouble due to the simple fact that they have no orders at this time.
However, if we recall this same problem was faced last year, at this same time. All we can do is hope for the best.

I do know however, that recently some of the employees at ARI in Paraguld were offered to transfer to Marmaduke, he supposedly has enough orders already booked to last until 2010

My understanding is that Marmaduke doesn't make the same things as Kennett does. Each place makes a different part. So if one shuts down then they will all have to. Can't make things without all the parts.
