Navistar officials aren’t giving up much information regarding plans for the company’s property in Chatham.

Company spokesperson Steve Schrier says demolition should wrap up in the summer and any redevelopment plans will be announced at a later date.

It’s not clear if the company intends to sell the property.

Last week, Chatham-Kent Mayor Randy Hope told the municipality is discussing potential uses for the property, but can’t move forward until Navistar makes its intentions clear.
