The NORDAM Group, Inc., along with four affiliates and subsidiaries, has filed a petition for relief under Chapter 11 in the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (Lead Case No. 18-11699).  NORDAM, based in Tulsa, OK, is a manufacturer of aerospace components and provider of aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul services.  According to the First Day Declaration, NORDAM filed the Petition as a result of incurring substantially higher than expected costs in performing under a long-term manufacturing agreement with Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation.  NORDAM is seeking approval of $45 million in Debtor-in-Possession Financing to be provided by its pre-petition senior lenders, with J.P. Morgan serving as DIP Agent.  Epiq is the proposed claims and noticing agent.  The cases have been assigned to the Honorable Mary F. Walrath.
