    Ilford, the latest news

    I've just had a conversation with my contact in Ilford UK and can report the following. Ilford are now manufacturing and selling normally having made up the back orders that were generated just after the news broke that they were in receivership. The range of chemical products will be back in the shops quite soon and will continue to be made, in fact no product has been discontinued. The receivers are actively looking for a buyer but I do not have any more information as to who etc, clearly anything relating to that is a closely guarded secret in the present circumstances.

    One thing that came across strongly during our conversation is that Ilford are exremely grateful for the response from both dealers and end users in both purchasing their products and the messages of support from many people. Clearly there is a long way to go but I now have a much more optimistic outlook with regard to future supplies of some of my favourite analogue products.

    Good news, and we can continue to support them by purchasing their products and asking our retailers to stock them.
