I see this as good (interim) news for Ilford UK, as well. But, it's unclear whether the German Ilford group is being de-activated as part of the receivership, or just what that story is. And, in truth, it's unclear how much inside scoop on Ilford UK Herr Neugebauer has, as the manager of the German unit being closed. It may be best to wait for definitive news from Ilford UK.
Ann - I've heard talk that the production of Ilford chemistry was or is being outsourced. But, again, no definitive news from Ilford itself that I've seen.
