I wonder how many more months befor MAM-A also will go down.
(So much for the words of setting up a possible extra production facility in the UK !)

I have been at this MAM-E factory and people told me that they had plenty of work: outsourcing for at least 6 months !
They think that this "financial collapse" has been somehow organized.

After the decision of the court they are now staying in the factory until it is going to be sold by pieces.

Well you can have much orders. But what if your selling products with huge losses.
I can only hope for the people working at the american companny that there owner learns fast from there mistakes and fixes them or else MAM-A will go down as well in less then a year !

MAM-E claims they couldn't compete with the taiwanese and CHinese manufacturers who are ruining the market by dumping there media.

Could be true

Look at Siemens and Benq. Benq "bought" the Mobile-Telefon-buisiness, had got much money from Siemens and after 1 year Benq tried to get money from Siemens for the taiwan-Benq, not for the German.
