As of Friday December 31, 2004 Quantegy has "ceased operations pending
restructuring". All 260+ employees, including myself, have been laid-off
pending further notice. Although there are some conflicting reports in the
media about whether or not Quantegy has filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, at this
time this has not been confirmed.
Quantegy is the only remaining company producing professional grades of
audio mastering tape and instrumentation tape and has been active in recent
years in the production of various professional video and data-tape
I may be called upon in the near future to assist in the sale of Quantegy's
remaining inventory so if you are interested please keep in touch and
contact me at home at email ******@******.comor phone ***-***-****.
Similarly, it would help if you could put the word out that I am looking for
work in case there is a job opportunity out there.
Its been a great pleasure to serve you for the last 5-6 years and I thank
you for your support. I wish you the best of success in the new year!

Keep in mind, that this is being written from the Toronto (Canada) branch. So when he says that Quantegy is the only remaining company producing professional grades of audio mastering tape and instrumentation tape, he probably is referring to North America only (since Emtec still exists in Germany I believe?)... although I could be wrong about this.
Most people probably won't care about Quantegy going bankrupt, since they aren't a huge brand name for DVDR or CD-R media.... but they actually were quite popular among professional audio and video companies, and mastering facilities.
