MOBERLY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri bank has joined with four companies seeking to force a failed artificial sweetener factory in Moberly into an involuntary bankruptcy case.

The Moberly Monitor-Index reports that UMB Bank and four creditors filed a case in federal bankruptcy court in Kansas City. They want to force Mamtek U.S. Inc. into bankruptcy, so a judge can appoint a trustee who could sell the company’s assets and distribute the money to creditors.

UMB already is the trustee for $39 million of municipal bonds used to finance the Mamtek project. Work on the facility halted this fall after Mamtek missed a payment and Moberly said it would default on the bonds.

The other creditors involved in the case include companies that had done work on the facility.

    Far too often, people file for bankruptcy unaware of what may happen and how bankruptcy will affect their debts and assets. Don’t fall into that trap.
