Its a real shame and a depressing sign of the hardships the manufacturing industry is going through, when a company that has survived for nearly a hundred years goes under.

Don't forget the forklifts. For you it may be worth the trip to pick up a couple of them, they could come in handy if you ever want access your tonewood you bought some years ago. Or do you already have some of these?
