Arizona RV dealer Beaudry RV laid off 51 of its combined 165 Tucson and Chandler employees Tuesday (Dec. 15), a result of the downturn in the RV business, said Beaudry RV CEO Thomas Sylvester.
Sylvester said he did not know the breakdown of the layoffs between Tucson and Chandler but that the combined work force now stood at between 112 and 115 at the two locations, according to the Arizona Daily Star.
He said there would also be a no-pay furlough of all employees from Dec. 23 through Jan. 2.
Beaudry RV emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy this summer.
Sylvester said the RV industry is still down, nationwide, but not dead. He said there have been some signs of revival. He said the dealership hosted 453 Monaco RV LLC luxury RV owners in October at the company’s local RV resort, and adjacent property and will host another 430 sometime in March.
