To our regret, we have to advise you, that the owners have come to the decision, to stop the production of FORTE photographic products, by Janaury 26th, 2007, definitely.
The FORTE factory established by George Eastman as a KODAK factory in 1922, as well its successors, have been manufacturing mainly black&white photo films and papers of superior/high quality, especially with warm tone, in a very wide range.
During the past decade, the demand for black&white photo products felt back drastically due to the fast technological development, that is confirmed even by the sales figures of your country.
The FORTE factory, has been working with huge overcapacities, and outdated equipment, on large piece of ground, with uneconomical infrastructure, resulting in continuous losses.
Consideruing the above, the long negotiations with several potential industrial investors, have failed.
We thank you for your several years's smooth and fruitful co-operatio, and wish you good success in the future.
