It has been said all over APUG that Kodak's E6 endeavor is about over, they discontinued almost all their reversal films. Kodak labeled chems, however, are no longer made by Kodak but by some separate company and only sold under Kodak's brand. So the Kodak guy is perfectly right as far as Kodak is concerned yet may not be correct about the overall E6 future.
This is good to hear and makes some sense. Fuji is the primary chrome film maker but there Pro6 chems are not readily available in the United States. That leaves a market for folks like Trebla, etc., and even Kodak branded chems.
