CHARLESTON – A Kansas manufacturer of waste water treatment equipment alleges that it is owed more than $15,000 from a Hurricane general contractor.
Smith & Loveless Inc. filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Hayslett Construction Co. Inc. and Fidelity and Deposit Co. of Maryland alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff received Hayslett's purchase order for a Grit Chamber in October 2016, and the plaintiff custom manufactured the equipment and delivered it to the defendant in July 2017.
The suit states the agreement was for the purchase price of $153,225 but the defendant breached contract by failing to pay for the Grit Chamber in full. The plaintiff alleges it is still owed $15,322.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. It is represented by Jeffrey D. Van Volkenburg in Clarksburg.
The case has been assigned to Judge Tod J. Kaufman.
