NEW YORK — Stainless steel boating product manufacturer Stainless Marine Inc. has filed a lawsuit against BP Plc and two of its subsidiaries for economic damages caused by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and oil spill.

“The adverse impact of the spill on the boating and marine activities along the entire Gulf Coast region” brought demand for Stainless Marine’s products and services to a “standstill,” the Opa Locka, Fla.-based company alleged in its lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in eastern Louisiana.

Boussard, La.-based LaRose Scrap & Salvage Inc. also recently filed a lawsuit against BP, claiming that it lost $3.7 million in income as a result of the spill (, April 22).

London-based BP could not be reached for comment.
