The transaction will include the MITL, ITL and Brawler brands, as well as GPX's plants in Gorham, Maine; Red Lion, Pa.; and Hebei, China. GPX expects to complete the sale by Dec. 31, pending approval by the bankruptcy court.

GPX filed bankruptcy in late October. (For more information, see Alliance Tire to acquire GPX International's assets on www.moderntiredealer.com.)
