PHILADELPHIA – A Malvern building products manufacturer alleges that a polymer producing company's defective materials have caused it to suffer damages of more than $1 million.
CertainTeed Corp. filed a complaint on Sept. 7, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Ravago Americas LLC alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant supplied defective materials to it and that these materials caused excessive and/or uneven fading of the plaintiff's polypropylene siding.
The plaintiff holds Ravago Americas LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly breached their contractual agreement with the plaintiff by failing to provide compound that was free in defects and material.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant for future monies paid to consumers for warranty claims, lost sales and harm to business reputation, costs of materials, expenses, compensatory damages, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. It is represented by Robert L. Hickok and Alexander L. Harris of Pepper Hamilton LLP in Philadelphia.
