In January 2001, French-based ride builder Gaston Reverchon Industries announced an alliance with O.D. Hopkins of New Hampshire, U.S.A., and in June, launched Hopkins Rides, a marketing firm that was to sell the products of both Reverchon and O.D. Hopkins.
Owner Jerry Pendleton kept the O.D. Hopkins plant and was set to build the rides sold by Hopkins Rides.
This fall, Pendleton closed the doors to O.D. Hopkins due to a lack of orders, leaving Reverchon and Hopkins Rides without a U.S.-based subcontractor.
Ca en est presque scandaleux pour la sécurité et la solidité du ride !
