Another Auto Supplier files Chap 11

Blackhawk Automotive Plastics has filed for Chapter 11 protection

1574 employees

supplies parts for the F-150, Explorer, Envoy and Blazer, plus several Chrysler vehicles....

I guess the good news is that it is only the 4th supplier this year to do so - compared with last year

Some shut their doors - some try & sell the pieces (like Collins & Aikman) some try & restructure (like Dana)
