Forte's still alive just, so support them. They are only producing to order but recently supplied Fotoimpex (& J&C), Berrger and other bulk pirchasers with freshly coated materials, Film & Paper.

As for Kodak chemicals, in the UK it was a farce just over a year ago, Kodak ceased manufacture of powdered chemicals here, Sangers became the official UK distributor (they already imported Kodak Minilabs), then suddenly last year they announced they were dropping their Kodak distributorship.

So maybe Kodak aren't interested in us consumers any more.
