PHILADELPHIA – A Glen Mills automotive paint and products company claims a Georgia company failed to fulfill an agreement.
Axalta Coating Systems LLC filed a complaint on Dec. 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Linda Y. Gray Inc., doing business as Sky Collision, alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff and defendant entered into a master incentive agreement and incentive agreement in August 2016. The agreements provided the defendant with a $250,000 shop allowance from the plaintiff and equipment in exchange for the defendant to purchase Axalta products exclusively.
The plaintiff holds Linda Y. Gray Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly breached the agreement by switching to a competitor's automotive paint before fulfilling the agreement.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for damages, interest, lost profits, court costs and any further relief the court grants. It is represented by Thomas R. Waskom of Hunton & Williams LLP in Richmond, Virginia.
