    I am sure that Ilford has weathered the economic storm and its future is reasonably bright but can you give us evidence of expansion and if it has then in what terms has it? A few years ago Ilford had to lose I think somewhere between 40 and 80 employees due to the recession. As a percentage of its workforce this was quite large. Much larger in percentage terms than the current Kodak loss of personnel.

    Has Ilford since then hired again? Maybe someone can tell us

    In many ways that's irrelevant, what has been happening with all manufacturers is a streamlining to cut overheads, the new management of Kodak Alaris may have a different viewpoint to the Carpet-baggers who ruined Kodak and lined their own pockets.

    From our points of view we need to emphasise the positives, Kodak is still making film but the new management has to make some major changes to revitalise their market position, that will inevitably mean a turnover of the work force, better use of existing staff will mean job losses but potentially a far more viable company.
