ITC Manufacturing declares Chapter 11 bankruptcy

International Technical Coatings, Inc. dba ITC Manufacturing with facilities in Arizona and Ohio has declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court District of Arizona. On November 18, 2015 court documents show Faruk Gole, president and CEO of ITC filed for bankruptcy relief to restructure its debt obligations primarily those owning to the Bank of America

Since 2011 multiple loans have been taken out at approximately $28.3 million.  ITC currently owes Bank of America approximately $25.7 million.  On October 28, 2015, Bank of America applied for appointment of a receiver over ITC.  Unable to secure an agreement with Bank of America prior to the scheduled hearing, ITC filed for bankruptcy protection.
