Metal manufacturer, whose owner died in 2016, is closing; 200 to lose jobs

By ,

Crowne Architectural Systems in North Bergen will terminate its operations due to cash flow shortage and leave 200 employees without jobs, according to a federal WARN notice.

The company’s former owner, Bruno Travalja, 52, founded Crowne Architectural Systems in his Ridgewood home in 2005. Travalja fell to his death in September from a Midtown Manhattan high-rise. He was survived by his wife, Alexis, and three children.

The metal manufacturer, specializing in curtain wall systems and exterior facades, intends to pay all employees all wages due for all work completed through April 18. Employees also will be granted severance and pension, if applicable, according to the notice filed with the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

Crowne Architectural Systems was not immediately available for comment.

WARN notices normally cover mass layoffs or facility closings as part of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1989.
