Calumet suddenly has gone out of business

Their website is gone and the news is starting to surface that Calumet photo is closed and filing for for bankruptcy. petapixel.com/2014/03/13/calumetphoto-us-declared-bankrup... My main concern is that I have the Genesis lights and now no way to get replacement flash tubes that I know of. I would hate to replace my entire setup because I can not get a replacement flash tube. If anyone has any information, please share it and I will do the same.

The UK web-site is still up - you could try ordering a few spares to stock if they can ship them to you before the shutters come down

Stores in other European countries are still there as well.

The manual for my PowerPort has a section that has apparently been replaced via some kind of sticker, presumably with corrections or changes. On that, it refers to the flash as the "Jinhui Genesis 300B", so I assume it is made by Jinhui. This here appears to be their website.

However, none of the studio flashes listed there resembles the Genesis series, so I assume it is somehow custom made, at least the outside part. You could always write to them and ask if maybe other models share the same flash tubes and/or if they offer replacements.
