    The eastern internatinal economic system controlled who was making what. Furthermore the manufacture of high-end colour materials require quite some resources. This was one of the reasons for the mergers in the West-European industry in the 60s.

    Probably for the same reason as Orwo and other Eastern block companies, with the break up of the Soviet block and the advent of free trade with the West they couldn't compete with the quality of Agfa, Kodak and Fuji E6 & C41colour dfilms. All the Eastern block films were based on outdated Agfa technolgy from the late 30's and early 1940's.

    So it's safe to say that at present their facilities are not up to todays requirements for colour?

    That would be conjecture. They may well still be able to make & coat colour films or papers but not have done the research to make modern competitive.

    Once you drop behind it's almost impossible to catch up, this was Ilford's problem because the UK government stopped their research into colour emulsions/processes during WWII.

    Foma stopped manufacturing colour films many, many years before the eastern economic system collapsed.

    I know Agfa took over Perutz in the 60s. Were there other colour makes in Germany?

    Yes, Adox and Tura. Next to others with non subtractive processes.

    Here they're open about it:

    But I think this is the original announcement, and the wording is weasely and tries to suggest that this is a film like Aerochrome without quite saying so.
