Is Olhausen in a downward-fall or is this guy full of it??

I was emailing with a Beringer rep and when I spoke of Brunswick/Olhausen here is what he said:

"Brunswick, Great Name...made in China now. But I would not knock Brunswick they have very similar protocols that we do and with out a very close study of such companies and respect you can not achieve a quality product."



"Olhausen, Great Name....and a very sad affair for the Industry that one of the largest manufacturers due to there inability to change with the times has caused such a Titan to go down. We do not expect them to survive past 2007."

Is there any truth to this about Olhausen?

Anyone here, have/heard of, Beringer tables? I can't go by this guy he gets paid to say they are great.

Olhausen just moved to Tennessee, building a brand new state of the art manufacturing and distribution facility. Hardly a sign of a company on their way out.

Beringer tables were used at the Canadian 9-Ball and Snooker Championships this year. Haven't heard anything either pro or con about them.

Sales reps are like politicians they can't twist anything around...

Yeah the rep was also quick to point that out. With a little research I found this quote:
"finally we are moving in the right direction and trying to bring our national championships in front of the public rather than tucked away in a pool room somewhere. With major sponsorship from Beringer Tables, Mr. Billiard, Simonis Cloth, and The Extended Stay Hotel Deluxe the venue was setup at the Super Ex in Ottawa"

I new to this but it doesn't sound like that was a huge event.
