PITTSBURGH – A Turtle Creek-based wall panel manufacturer is looking to recoup over $300,000 in unpaid funds from a Maryland construction company, connected to a project at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, in Washington, D.C.
TAKTL, LLC of Turtle Creek filed suit in the Allegheny Court of Common Pleas on Dec. 12 versus PCC Construction Components, Inc., of Gaithersburg, Md.
On or before Aug. 4, 2015, TAKTL was asked by PCC to quote certain material including high performance concrete panels for its project at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, to which TAKTL replied with an order for the purchase of high performance concrete panels on Aug. 28 of that same year, at a price of $763,750.50, the suit says.
Per the lawsuit, on Oct. 5, the total contract price increased to $1,003,202.40 through a series of change orders. PCC then received and duly accepted the goods and materials in question, which were within published and industry tolerances.
“In addition to paying an initial deposit of $360,000, defendant PCC paid $320,878.22 against invoices during the course of the contract’s performance. As of Oct. 1, 2017, plaintiff TAKTL had fulfilled its contractual obligations under the parties’ contract, but defendant PCC has failed to pay the outstanding balance of $322,324.18, notwithstanding its obligation to pay within 30 days of invoice in accordance with the terms and conditions of the parties’ contract,” the suit states.
Despite repeated demands, PCC has supposedly “willfully failed and refused” to pay the aforesaid balance of $322,324.18, plus interest to plaintiff TAKTL for said goods.
For breach of contract, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $322,324.18 plus continuing interest on that principal balance at a rate of six percent per year together with costs.
The plaintiff is represented by Arthur H. Stroyd Jr. and Justin T. Romano of Del Sole Cavanaugh Stroyd, in Pittsburgh.
