    Ilford North America closing ?

    I hoping this is just a rumor but I am also hoping Simon can answer this asap.

    On photo.net someone is reporting the Ilford North America, a distributor is closing.

    Can someone fill us in and tell us if this is true and if so, what does this mean?

    This is one way to start a thread!
    Could you give us a link to the post?

    I've never found the rumors on photo.net to be all that reliable. It seems to me that they attract a large number of doomsayers, especialy when it comes to film related rumors. Without some substantial source, I'd discount it outright.

    Here is the link. I've also sent a PM to Simon about this.

    I've moved this to "Product Availability." If it turns out to be unsubstantiated nonsense, we'll move it to "Product Availability Gloom and Doom."

    My mistake David. My Greek mythology is a bit rusty these days (so is my spelling apparently - should be two s's). I edited it immediately after posting - your fast!

    Since we have Ilfords "ear", I thought I should ask.

    Place this thread wherever it should be.

    Well, I guess they're gone for good, now. They're no longer on Ilford's Distributor list (as if they ever were). Infact they are "so gone", they can't be found through Google. Darn, another ambiguous entity bites the bullet.

    Before I would declare death, I would wait to see what Simon has to say, he seems to be real responsive to the threads about Illford that get posted around here, and even if the US distributor goes away, I am sure they will continue to supply product, in addition, JandC carries Illford products, perhaps they will be able to do some things...

    Come on guys, why worry about it until you hear about it from the horses mouth? I am sure Simion will chime in here.
