What's up with Van Dessel?

Hey all,

I have recently become enamored with the Van Dessel WTF. I would really like to buy one but the company's website has been down for over a month or maybe longer as I have only been looking for that long. When you click on their site it states there is a new site coming soon and to call or email and they will get back to you. I have called and left several messages and even sent 2 emails asking for the location of the nearest dealer. I have not received a response and the site is still down.

Anyone have a clue when they may be back up and running? Honestly I'm considering not even doing business with them. What kind of company just shuts their website down while they revamp it? Obviously it's hard to cultivate new business when you can't even get in touch with them but what if you were an existing customer and needed parts or warranty service?

Seriously, who does business like this?

IDK .. maybe they folded .. brands come and go .. now that TW is contract manufacturer to the world . the 'Brand' companies are fluid.

CAD Email a PDF , CAM , wrap & box and pack a container, and ship across the sea in a Big container Boat . money and goods are always in motion ..
