Essentially a former employee stole money, but insurance only covered a very small percentage. He was forced to fire his employees and shut down.

This^


Basically embezzled so much cash that HPF couldnt recover.....I still dont know how they didnt realize it sooner though. I dont have too much info, but im reading about it on another source.

Something to the tune of $200k was stolen, and the insurance company only payed out $25k, which forced the doors to be shut. I want to give a huge handshake out to Chris though. We will surely miss him and his efforts, as well as his whole team

This is huge loss to BMW community. I understand their high price tags and all but it was quite amazing to see their built E46 M3...never gets old. Hopefully God has planned something better for HPF & Chris himself.

Man this is such a shame. Cant stand greedy people ruining it for guys that work really hard in any field not just automotive.

Pretty hard to believe someone just stole $200k and it went unnoticed though.

What I'm really surprised about is that the company is going under because of just $200k...
