Well according to this article atleast it seams Sansei Technologies, the people who own S&S currently have bought out Vekoma.
Some of the Press quotes from the article.
Quite interesting development, will be exciting to see what comes of this hopefully.
S&S - Sansei has released a number of concept videos, showing new layouts for current models and new models all-together. Lots of concepts that feature back-launch spikes, such as we have seen on the new Star Trek Mack coaster. Which one is your favorite?
