According to the Kodak website, Tri-x is the world's best selling black and white film. Yet it can't produce a single 120 roll at a profit? It seems odd that Ilford can apparently sell a single roll of HP5 at a profit. Maybe Kodak should let Ilford run the Kodak marketing department.
It also seems to me that 120 Plus-X was first discontinued in single rolls not too long (a year or so?) before the plug was pulled on the entire product.
Their film lines are profitable. This has been discussed on this board frequently in the past.
I read that Ilford were not profitable last year. Did they not sack 25 people or so at the start of this year?
