Article on Irving Tanning Co. in Hartland, which filed for bankruptcy in March, the second bankruptcy filing in four years. In September, Meriturn Partners closed its buyout of Irving with a $14 million package that paid off much of the company's debt. Richard Larochelle, president and CEO of Irving, said a new operating structure and market focus should make the company profitable again. Larochelle identified a new product focus for the company, aimed at high-quality apparel customers. Irving also plans to go after more U.S. military contracts, because the military is required to purchase American-made boots and other supplies.
