Bendheim carried Kügler before Loo, but had a falling out about business practices. They picked up Zimmerman somewhat later, but Zimmerman went through a period of really awful quality control which was straightened out. They were also carrying Wiesenthalhütte which I believe at that time was made primarily for pressing jewels and other things and was not really made to be compatible. Eventually Bendheim was just not too interested in hassling with color anymore and gave it up.

I think the Swedish factories use the bars, but I don't know if this is a recent thing or not.
