Gerbings acquired by Prospect Brands, LLC

This may explain the previous thread.

"Changes at Gerbings - After bringing manufacturing back home to the US from overseas, Northwest born, Gerbing’s Heated Clothing, Inc., a leading manufacturer of heated clothing and accessories, has announced that it has been acquired by Prospect Brands, LLC and will be led by Tom Nolan, who will serve as President and Chief Executive Officer."

Re: Gerbings acquired by Prospect Brands, LLC

Looks like Jeff Gordon, the founders son, sold out to this venture equity firm. This could be good news for customers going forward but I bet there's a lot of unhappy employees now.
