Retractable Roof Manufacturer

Does anyone know who made the SLK retractable roof for Mercedes ? I have also heard that the same design was used on other cars. Anyone know which ones ? Tried the search but may not have asked the right question.

Also any record of an SLK losing the top panel while driving ?

I have found references to Magna Car Top Systems, Gmbh but seems to have little online presence. Is this who made/make the SLK retractable roofs ?
