KITCHENER, Ontario — KW Leather Products was forced to lay off its entire staff today in reaction to the aftermath of Erwin Hymer Group North America (EHGNA) entering receivership, CTV News reported.

KW Leather Products provided more than 300 items for EHGNA, and the corporation owed the firm $1.2 million. Hymer’s total indebtedness was $273 million.

“What is bothering me the most is that the people that worked for me for 20 or 25 years, there are no jobs now. I cannot do anything, I cannot do too much for them,” said Zaid Samid.
