NEW YORK Bradford Steel
Co. Inc. has sued contractor K-Con Inc. for allegedly failing
to pay for steel structures that the company supplied for an
Air National Guard facility in Cape Cod, Mass.
K-Con hasnt paid the more
than $74,000 it owes Bradford Steel for steel structures
received for the project at Otis Air Force Base, according to
court documents filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in
K-Con, North Charleston, S.C.,
was contracted by the federal government to secure labor and
materials for the project. K-Con and Bradford Steel, East
Freetown, Mass., entered into a subcontract in November 2010
worth $282,186, according to the lawsuit.
"You can only wait so long
before you get paid," Bradford Steel president Brian Jackson
K-Con paid for part of the
supplies, but still owes Bradford Steel $74,146 and has refused
to pay the balance, the lawsuit states.
Bradford Steel has asked the
court to award the remainder of the alleged nonpayment, as well
as interest and costs and any further judgment it deems fit to
apply, the lawsuit states.
