How many manufacturers are there in the United Kingdom who make film and paper? Has there been any movements of photographic equipment machinery into the United Kingdom?

In reply to that question there may be two. Ilford (Harman) obviously but Kodak continues to coat colour paper in the UK. Until some years ago, the factory here also coated a range of colour & monochrome Kodak films until production of the films seemed to be moved to China (for colour for a short period) and USA (with packing in Mexico). Whether the UK factory still has all the equipment to coat & finish films I've no idea, and having said all that I strongly suspect Harman are making the Freestyle range.

Just looked at the Freestyle site & there seems to be some kind of problem with the "Silver Collection". See:-
