    Why so quiet at Ilford ???

    Hi All,
    The state of Ilford's restructuring has all gone very quiet for the last month - in fact since about the time there was a rumour that there would be an announcement in December. Is no news good news, or should the lack of information be viewed with suspicion? Anyone heard any updates or whispers?
    Best wishes,
    Steve

    Hi Steve

    I believe Ilford is producing material as I recieved chemicals and paper before christmas, One of the announcements I recieved was that a price increase was to be in effect Jan 17 05,
    Ilford is trying to bring product into NA , after a very trying period.
    I wish them good luck

    Not that I'm one to spread rumours, but the most recent whisper I've heard came from Roger Hicks over on photo.net: the powder developers may be un-discontinued.

    Best,

    Good news if it's true, and I love that expression "un-discontinued" !!!

    Usually when things go quiet like this it's for one of two reasons, the first is that nothings happening. The second is that talks are in progress and they don't want to wreck negotiations. Hopefully it's the second as no news is usually good news.

    I was in my dealer's yesterday and they have a whole wall of new paper supplies, and filters, which they were not able to get late last year.

    the chemical question is still hanging in out there. i know those of use who use those products will be happy when we get the word. Either with joy or ..........

    Ann, for the moment I'm just happy that I can get their films, papers and chemicals again. As long as the workers there and their families hear before we do (either way and not the norm in the UK) I'll be happy to wait for the news.

    I agree with that assessment, Tony. But, for what it's worth, I know nothing, and can't say anything about it.

    Sounds good to me Ralph, I'm sure we will find out soon enough. As they say until then the show must go on.

    From our Dutch correspondent: Plenty of HP5 and FP4, no Pan F. Very little Multigrade paper. No chemicals.
