    Jobo Insolvency

    Jobo is currently still beeing operated by it´s business leader and owner Mr. Bockemühl. He has aproached various customers about the planned continuation of the company and brand.
    A supervisor has been appointed by German court and the company is running under supervision currently.

    Today we received the news that tanks which had been unavailable yesterday will become available again probably within less than two weeks.

    As to my understanding this insolvency has more to do with the technical aspects of german social and business laws as with a possible complete failure of Jobo´s.

    I am very optimistic that we will continue to have Jobo darkroom accessories available for our analogue work in the future.

    Best regards,

    Thanks Mirko, that's interesting. I have been watching out for a decent CPP for a while, but in view of the news had decided to drop the idea.

    At least Jobo still offer two types of processors.
    (In 2006 they announced the manufacture of processors like ATL and CP being cancelled.)

    Where can they be had in the USA? At B&H they only sell the drums not the machines.

    Mirko: A very sincere thanks for bringing us up to date. Would your company, with your emphasis on analog products, ever think of operating Jobo?
