A Beaumont company is suing to recover money allegedly owed by a Michigan company.

C&D Skilled Robotics Inc. filed a lawsuit May 20 in Jefferson County District Court against TGW Systems Inc., citing breach of contract. 

According to the complaint, on May 8, 2008, the two companies involved in the suit entered into an agreement where C&D was to receive a 5 percent commission for all equipment, engineering and installation services provided by TGW in the tire industry. Since the agreement was written TGW has conducted business, including a $20 million contract with Goodyear, but has failed to pay any commissions to C&D, according to the suit.

On Oct. 26, the plaintiff sent the defendant an invoice for unpaid commissions totaling approximately $715,589, but has not heard from the defendant regarding the outstanding amount. C&D contends this behavior constitutes a breach of contract.

The plaintiff is seeking damages of at least $715,589, plus costs. It is represented by attorney Larry J. Simmons of Germer PLLC.
