Westcrowns Inc., the Shallotte, N.C., distributor of Pilkington's Profilit
product which abruptly shut down last Friday will be filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy
possibly the end of this week but more likely next week, according to William
Janvier, the bankruptcy lawyer who is representing the company. He is with Everett
Gaskins Hancock & Stevens LLP in Raleigh, N.C.
Janvier explained that with the filing, which is a liquidation bankruptcy,
the court will appoint a trustee to oversee the liquidation of the company's assets
and to sort out its financial matters.
