The company in Germany contacted me again just now, only confirming that the
name of the new company is L + S Jena GmbH. They say they will contact me again
next week to provide additional information.
They also said that they expect to resume production of VarioUltra the first
week in July.
More news as I get it...

Thank you David. I have been a very happy user of Baum products and I look
forward to any further news that you have to share. If there is anything that I
can do to help, I am happy to do so.

I recently learned that the assets of BAUM Retec in Germany had been sold to
another company in Germany. These assets include products like VarioUltra. I do
not know the name of the new company yet. A person identifying themselves as
being in charge of production for braille products, contacted me yesterday via
LinkedIn asking if I wish to know more about the new company. I replied saying
that of course I'm interested, and asked what their plans are for ongoing
support of customers worldwide.
I will continue to share anything I learn here on the VarioUltra list.
