    Another Agfa paper rumor -- confirm, anybody?

    I just saw this exchange over on the large format site:

    http://www.largeformatphotography.in...ad.php?t=21814

    Is anyone here in a position to confirm or deny or explain?

    There are negotiations going on between some investors, Rollei/Maco and some third parties ( ) to have a restart of the production unit for Agfa MCP/MCC. If this is a continuation in France, it is not sure at all. Further I have no direct information available.

    Further without any comment on this subject. For such a financial injection you need some real money of course.

    Best regards,

    Rats. I tried to read the linked thread but the site denied me access. And my German isn't all it could be. :-(

    Real money ... there might be some of us out here willing to invest in the cause, if the result is fresh MCC 111 ....

    You might all consider the fact that the majority of the old Agfa equipment was auctioned off, and went to a number of different bidders. Therefore, with this degree of fragmentation, it seems to me it would be hard for anyone to replicate Agfa products without considerable investment in the missing pieces.

    There is no coating plant in France, all they ever did in France was cut and box Agfa paper.

    Sadly, given the shrunken demand for B+W photographic papers, the French calendar might afford an optimal runtime for a modern paper coating facility.
