Keywords: Tags  copper metals trade, harvey industries, lawsuit, aluminum alloy

NEW YORK — Copper Metals Trade SA de CV has filed a lawsuit against Livonia, Mich.-based Harvey Industries LLC for allegedly failing to pay for five shipments of aluminum.

The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Texas claims that Harvey, which operates a warehouse and distribution center in Laredo, Texas, took delivery in July and August of almost 331,500 pounds of 319 and 356 aluminum alloy valued at $368,342 but failed to pay for the material despite multiple extensions. In addition to the value of the aluminum, Jalisco, Mexico-based Copper Metals also is seeking interest and court costs.

Copper Metals said in court documents that it tried for six months to resolve the issue, but "it has become apparent that (Harvey) never intended to comply with the contract, which may result in additional claims as discovery continues."

Neither Copper Metals nor Harvey was available for comment.
