Probably you are going to see some changes on the market! Some of your items and favourites disappear! Also some of the repacking and re-labelling companies going to disappear or going to sell some cheap low quality film in their box as Forte closed down the production of photographic materials do to huge overcapacity.
The demand on photographic films and papers are very low and Forte’s facilities are designed to produce a large quantity each year. It had been exported its products to some 53 countries world wide Do to Today’s low demand on films and papers the investors decided to not to rebuilt or invest on new line but to closed the the factory down. This is now 99.99%.
Here goes another European manufacturer into the grave and sadly both Agfa and Forte were my absolute favourites along Kodak. This is a sad story as Forte produced superior quality of Black and white paper so as films. The result of this is that low quality films going to appear in the market From Russia and China.
Sadly with Fortes sortie a bit of Kodak’s history has ended too the factory established by George Eastman as a Kodak Factory in 1922 ends here.
