    I do not know, but wasn't it exactly this what Mirko always told us? Efke stopped production and because of this there is no CHS anymore, this is what everybody knows and what Mirko always said, you can read this in all analog related german forums. But it is not true that Fotokemika (efke) is down, Fotokemika just stopped the production of film and photographic paper. Generally it was a little bit difficult to find out what was going on there in Zamobor, this is what I heard.....

    The problem with chemicals is also true, I heard stories about such problems in Zamobor many months before stopping production, so this really could be one reason among others. And the problem with machines seems also to be true.

    The situation in Zamobor has been confused but is now clear.
    The machinery was located in a building that the company was renting to an owner. But this building was in a very bad state. Rain was running inside, and it became dangerous to work in such a building.
    It was too much expensive to move the machinery so they decided to stop in June, and they let the world know their decision in September.

    I sounds to me like Efke may have a case against the landlord for not properly maintaining the building. I'm going to really miss that film, and if ADOX can come up with something similar, I would be very happy to buy it. Not that I use(d) a lot of it,though.

    Given that Efke was reported to be in the building under a generous rent-free arrangement as a favour from its owner, I doubt there's much recourse.

    True, I was thinking too much like an American Here we sue someone because the coffee is hot and graduate students get a C+ in a course.
