ZF Steering Systems LLC Files lawsuit Against Busche Enterprise Division, Inc. and General Aluminum Manufacturing Company, Inc

ZF Steering Systems LLC has sued Busche Enterprise Division, Inc., alleging the Albion manufacturer failed to provide parts. As a result of that breach of contract, General Motors Co. might have to halt production on vehicles using the housing and gearbox covers, the lawsuit alleges. The disputed parts are used in the Cadillac ATS. Busche Enterprise Division, Inc. announced that it stopped shipments to ZF Steering Systems LLC because the customer didn't live up to a long-term agreement. The civil suit filed names Busche Enterprise Division, Inc. and General Aluminum Manufacturing Company, Inc. as defendants. ZF Steering in October 2010 entered a contract with General Aluminum to make parts for GM's 'Alpha' Program. General Aluminum brought in Busche Enterprise as a second- tier supplier to do machining on the parts. The arrangement worked from January through August 16, 2012 but shipments stopped August 17, 2012. To restore the supply chain, ZF Steering entered an agreement directly with Busche Enterprise through emails sent to Busche Enterprise's attorney. Busche Enterprise honored the deal for more than a week before, on September 6, 2012, it tried to add new terms to the contract, including demanding immediate payment of $2.5 million, demanding payments not yet due on other contracts and demanding that (ZF Steering) enter into other contracts.
