The NORDAM Group, Inc., together with its domestic subsidiaries  and affiliates, today announced it has filed a voluntary petition for protection under Chapter 11  reorganization.

NORDAM’s foreign subsidiaries and affiliates have not filed for Chapter 11 protection  in the United States or in their home jurisdictions.

The action comes following a protracted contract dispute with Pratt & Whitney Canada regarding the  PW800 nacelle system used in Gulfstream G500 and G600 aircraft.

NORDAM CEO Meredith Madden stated: “This court filing is not what we wanted to do, but it is  what we had to do. It is the best path forward for our company because it allows our business to  operate without interruption.”

The filing is supported by additional financing from NORDAM’s bank lenders to help ensure  operations continue uninterrupted during the restructuring process.

“We are confident in our company and its future. We will emerge from the Chapter 11 process  successfully, as an even stronger company,” Madden said.
