Shelburne Falls-based company Lamson & Goodnow Manufacturing Co. recently filed for bankruptcy for protection against creditors after several sizable loans could not be repaid, The Lowell Sun reported on August 24.

Reports said the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a Springfield court in order for them to reorganize their finances. Bankruptcy documents stated that Lamson & Goodnow cannot settle the two multimillion dollar loans they acquired.
