RE: Bankruptcy of CMI Industries [See March 28, 2002 Update]
We have been informed that CMI Industries, with a plant in Surry County, North Carolina, has filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. CMI was self-insured for workers’ compensation claims in North Carolina.
As of the date of this notice, CMI is continuing to pay all workers’
compensation claims. Therefore, all
parties having existing or new workers’ compensation claims should proceed
with those claims as would normally occur.
If any claimant does not receive benefits to which they are lawfully
entitled or should benefits awarded be suspended or terminated for unexplained
reasons, please notify the Industrial Commission.
Questions or concerns regarding CMI claims should be directed to:
Stephen T. Gheen, Chief Deputy Commissioner, 919-807-2540 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the volume of inquiries, email communication is requested if
possible, though not required.
The Industrial Commission website (www.comp.state.nc.us)
will be updated as needed with additional information.
