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.

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.
