    There is an absolute obligation for a private comapny to divulge the health of their finances in the UK (and I'm sure other countries too)

    Every year a private limited company must file their annual accounts and an Annual return detailing the names and addresses of directors and shareholders, to Companies house.

    You can check out Kentmere if you like and download a PDF of their accounts and / or annual return (for £1 each), it's all public information:

    (bear in mind of course that a company like Kentmere may have a corporate structure of more than one company and holding companies etc. which together form the company we know)

    I second the motion!

    Dear Travis and Jim,

    As I sure you realise I cannot possibly comment at this time about products that had been delisted by KENTMERE.

    All I can confirm is what was said in the press release that all current products will remain in the range.

    I hope the buyout is a positive move for Harmon/Ilford. They produce top quality products and I hope they avoid sapping their financial strength by this purchase. Surely product duplication will be sorted out such as marketing rebranded Kodak chemicals.

    Kentmere offers quality, innovative papers. My hope is that Ilford's production costs fall and the team's emulsion chemists offer photographers additional quality choices in paper. I suggest a warm toned paper with a contrast curve tuned to separate low and middle tones vs the current MGIV curves.

    I appreciate the British for their traditional ways. We in the states are thankful.

    Interesting...I'm a bit suprised...I would have thought there was value in combining US distrubtion of Kentmere with Ilford...

    Since we're talking about Kentmere and Freestyle...will Ilford allow any Kentmere product to be private labeled?

    If everything is to proceed as it exists, then YES Harman will allow Kentmere paper to be private labeled. Harman has only stated that no ILFORD branded film will be private labeled.

    Freestyle is a wholesale distributor, one of the largest for traditional film and paper materials, as well as a large Retail and mail order store operation. I believe they will have greater market penetration by keeping Kentmere at Freestyle distribution.

    And I bet it stays that way, with Freestyle selling a good bit of private labeld Kentmere. I would guess that a much larger percentage of Kentmere gets sold under a Arista label than was ever the case for Ilford paper.

    Harman / Ilford Photo acquires Kentmere Photographic

    Maybe it was already mentioned here before, but I just noticed on the Ilford Photo website:

    http://www.ilfordphoto.com/pressroom/article.asp?n=87

    that Kentmere has been taken over by Harman / Ilford Photo...

    Thought it might be intersting for those of you printing on Kentmere paper
