    Is Frink completely out of business or are they just majorly downsized. I have always been impressed with there products and the long time of serving the snow removal community and am curious as to there status.

    Frink was bought by Everest (credit for that info goes to GeoffD). Apparently both are now built in Canada.

    GUYS, I have a motel in that neck of the woods Clayton NY.
    Frink gave all their employees an HOUR notice and their
    paychecks. And they had to remove their tools and such
    under the watchful eye of the local police !
    Many pissedoff folks in Clayton to this day ! Frink is a dirty
    word around here ! They thought they were supposed to
    get at least a 90 day notice and severence pkgs. They
    got zero, zilch, nada ! The ex- employees are still fighting
    after 2 years with the labor boards and such for at least a
    crumb of something. They sold the waterfront factory to
    some developer for like 2 million last year.
    Poor Mr. Frink must be rolling in his grave !........geo

    BTW; A few years back frink had a pickup truck
    plow set up simular to the western uni/ ultra mount
    before western did !
