Freedom Execs Tied to New Chemical Company
David Gutman of The Charleston Gazette reports that executives of soon-to-be-bankrupt Freedom Industries haven't abandoned the chemical industry. In fact, they've created a new company in Lexycon, LLC, which was founded in Florida in March and registered with the West Virginia Secretary of State's office about a month ago.
Freedom Industries, the company whose chemical leak contaminated the tap water of 300,000 West Virginians, will cease to exist once it goes through bankruptcy, but that doesn't mean its executives are out of the chemical business. Lexycon LLC, a chemical company whose characteristics are strikingly similar to Freedom Industries, registered as a business with the West Virginia secretary of state about a month ago.
