    Hi All,

    Just a note to welcome aboard Mirko Boeddecker of Fotoimpex/Adox into the APUG Partner family. The Partners now consist of:

    Ilford
    Elevator
    Calumet
    Fotoimpex/Adox http://www.adox.de

    The Partners continue to put their weight behind APUG covering a large portion of our operating costs. I appreciate Mirko's support and look forward to working with him.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Welcome, Mirko!

    Before J&C made it easy to get East European films and papers in the U.S., I used to batch orders from Fotoimpex with a couple of other New York photographers to get these materials and save on shipping from Berlin. I highly recommend them.

    I just looked at the site and see no indication of sheet films. Are these being produced? Also a list of retailers would be good.

    They are a retailer. If there's anything you need that you don't see on the site or can't find in the German catalogue, e-mail Mirko, and he can usually arrange it for you. Any of the East European films that J&C sold in any of those sizes can be obtained through Fotoimpex (except Forte, of course, since the plant is closed).

    Jim, Fotoimpex are the retailers. The Adox site is still under construction Fotoimpex bought the name Adox and use it as their brand name for relabelled products.

    See Fotoimpex for the full range of products they sell.

    Congratulations to both Sean and to Mirko. I think it is a great deal for both and for us as well.

    That's another good news; this week has been very positive so far with the announcements from Kodak and Ilford.

    In North America, I presume Freestyle will be the major outlet for Adox products, given that they already stock some of their films and chemistry?

    A bit late... very good news.

    I fully agree with the positive comments for Fotoimpex. My experience with them so far has always been that of an excellent service!

    Great! After a retailer bankruptcy in Sweden. Fotoimpex is my new main dealer. (Now if they could only get their webshop up it would be much easier to buy stuff from them. Sometimes convenience is more important than price...)

    Thats the only film I use. and one of the only companies I can get
    120,4x5,8x10,11x14, 8x20 all in the same film so there is no guess work. I'm happy to see them come on board. quality needs to support quality.

    Fantastic news:smile:, i've just received some developer and film yesterday via Berlin, excellent service and client support from Fotoimpex.

    A great move both by Sean and Mirko, both parties will certainly get good benefits out of this partnership.:cool:


    Cheers
