    Ilford Imaging released two statements. They state to have been delivered by major suppliers in those critical days and name their new investing partner, a japanese wholesaler for their ink-jet materials.
    Furthermore they hint at their new business plan, but without reference to any further cuts to to their product range. Though all references to products only apply on ink-jet materials.

    I'm glad the situation is looking better for them. Certainly their range of ink jet papers is widely distributed in the UK and seems to sell well.

    Ilford Imaging definitely stopped with halide products

    The Swiss Broadcasting Corporation reported that Ilford stopped with analogue materials.
    A leading Ilford engineer, who is made redundant himself, is quoted that only Fuji still makes halide papers (which indeed is a weird statement, but telling about the production situation at Ilford.)
    From this and other statements it must be concluded that production of silver-dye-bleach films also ended.

    Ilford Imaging is illiquide again

    after their new investing partner has retracted. Now again it is for the court to decide upon insolvency unless in the mean time a new investor shows up.

    Furthermore they refer to difficulties with their suppliers, contradicting their last statement where they just praised them fort their commitment.

    Hi Agx
    I am on the other side of the Atlantic and I can hardly make things clear between Ilford Frigbourg and the other entities running under the Ilford or Harmann names.
    Can you light thing up for me please?
    Thanks

    Put very simple: once the swiss Tellko and the british Ilford merged under the ownership of Ciba under the Name of Ilford. But that was also the time of Cibacolor. In the beginning crisis they split with the swiss entity going on as Ilford Imaging, whereas the british entity re-started as Harman.
    With Harman making b&w films and paper, Ilford Imaging making colour films and paper. Both also make ink-jet papers.
    Ilford Photo is no company, not even a department as Simon indicated above, but only a manufacturer brand of Harman, designating part of the Harman-made silverhalide materials.

    Ilford Imaging is dead

    The judge decided that the company has to be dissolved.

    That's terrible.
    So, I guess this is likely the end for Gold Fiber Silk inkjet paper?

    What Simon and AgX have said is totally correct. I don't think it can be stressed too strongly that, in recent years, "Ilford" is just a trademark, used by the Swiss company for inkjet and cibachrome products, and by Harman Technology in the UK for B&W films, paper, chemicals and other analogue products.

    Other than using the word "Ilford" for the two different classes of products, it is public information available on the UK Government company registry, that there are no connections, financial or otherwise, between the Swiss company and Harman, with the latter being rock-solid and, we hope, around for many years.

    To complete the story, Harman does make/supply a range of (excellent) inkjet papers under its own name, but these do not carry any Ilford trademarks.
