PITTSBURGH Green Group Recycling in McAllen, Texas, is being sued by a group of companies that generate auto scrap for allegedly not paying for industrial scrap in Pennsylvania and Mexico.
Philadelphia-based Cardone Industries Inc., Tamaulipas, Mexico-based Tridonex S de RL de CV and Tridonex USA LLC and Global Reman Ventures, both of Wilmington, Del., have filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Texas seeking to recover $365,552.
The company picked up irony aluminum from Cardones Philadelphia facility and automotive scrap from plants in Matamoros, Mexico, and Harlingen, Texas, according to the lawsuit, but allegedly did not pay for all of the material.
The plaintiffs said in court documents that they initially did not send invoices but later realized payments were owed dating back to January 2012. The lawsuit said that in January this year Jacob Garza, a Green Group employee, established a payment plan but it was never executed.
Green Group could not be reached for comment.
