Several companies, including Monmouth Rubber & Plastics Corp., are interested in purchasing plants and machinery owned by RBX Industries Inc., which filed for bankruptcy protection in late February. A date for the auction will be determined by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Western District of Virginia, where RBX and its RBX Industries Inc. operating subsidiary filed for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code less than three weeks after it said it would close plants. It's the second time companies have filed for reorganization in just over three years.
