Emtec, formerly BASF magnetics, here in Europe is at present unable to
deliver any magnetic tape at all.
They had cashflow problems in the beginning of this year and couldn´t
pay their sources of raw material.
No one from a reliable source can tell if they will ever come back
After half a year of zero product no one over here believes they will
If this is true then we only hace Quantegy left as the sole world wide
producer of magnetic tape.
I wonder for how long??
