    Things can change! Footnote, there's some great CEOs out there that did start in the mail room or other great success routes (eg Jack Welch comes to mind...), here's a few more...

    Regardless, I've grand hopes for the new leadership. I will write in you in as VP & Chief Film Evangelist, kind of like Google did with Vint Cerf making him Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist

    Jack Welch started this whole mess. No hero there.

    I did some Googling and turned up the Kodak UK Pension Board's address, see link below. I think I've a print shot of Tri-X and printed on Ektalure that I gotta send their way, might as well congratulate em and plant a bug in their ear that if they've the time to maybe coat a few boxes or two of Ektalure ever so often...

    Colleen, the above link for the new owners?
    Another great way to show support is to buy film

    Matt;

    Most all of those people are gone due to declining sales. They moved elsewhere or did other things. So, as noted in another post, Harman did this RIF (Reduction In Force) in a more reasonable manner. Seems Kodak has let go the best of the best.

    And yes, I agree with you to a point, but when all of your manages are bean counters or those who never new or cared about film, your arguments go out the window.

    That is an interesting link to the BJP, but I wonder if the statement at the beginning of paragraph six, "Kodak also expects the deal will enable Kodak's film business to strive." is a real howler or if it is what the author really means.

    Cheers,

    I think that you will find that Harman's execs/directors had all been with the old Ilford company, and were well experienced in their respective fields. The old UK Ilford company appears to have failed through being loaded with overheads from other non-analog parts of the business, while the buyout stripped the company of these and allowed it to concentrate on its present range of products. These are produced at the same Mobberley plant as before, with, SFAIK, no break in production and no doubt with many of the same staff.

    Agreed.

    My favorite* Kodak b&w film is Plus-X. My second favorite is Panatomic-X. And my favorite Kodak color film (and favorite Kodak product of all time) is—what else?—Kodachrome.

    I'm ready to buy today...

    FP4+, Pan F+ respectively and...uh...well there's nothing even remotely close to Kodachrome anymore.

    And of course those others don't exactly support Kodak. I do love TMY-2 and TXT though.
