Wholesale distributor Tire Group International (TGI) is taking legal action against Amrik International Trading, Neeto International General Trading and all respective principles, claiming breach of contact.
According to TGI, $1.2 million worth of goods were ordered by Amrik from TGI, but the goods were refused at port, which did not honor the contractual agreement. Additionally, TGI cites that Amrik refused to send payment. The company is seeking compensation for costs relating to demurrage charges, storage fees, and re-transport of the tires.
“TGI prides itself in partnering with globally reputable companies. We offer financial support to qualified clients and work closely with them to grow together,” said TGI founder and Chairman Tony Gonzalez. “We are fully aware of the difficult times our international distributors have faced in the past year and have been able to work through it amicably with all, except one. Amrik has decided to ignore our pleas for resolution and ignore its responsibilities. TGI will do all in its power and employ all legal resources to recover monies due and ensure that honor and ethics prevail.”
Currently, TGI said it is collaborating recover efforts with the Consulate General of the United State of America, the U.S. Department of Commerce and International Trade Administration, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, and legal courts in both the USA and UAE.
