    Is Bergger paper made by Forte and if so, does this mean Bergger is now out of business?

    I think the prevailing rumor is that they are looking for a new coating facility.

    Bergger is a separate company based in France that has contracted out the production of most of its products to Forte. If Forte cannot produce, then Bergger will source its products elsewhere. Don't expect the replacement products to be identical. Bergger has stated that they have enough inventory to see them through a transition. i think Bergger will be around for a long time.
