It's often forgotten that Kodak Ltd, UK sometimes made and sold products in Europe never available in the US. In terms of developers 3 come to mind, HDD, Kodelon and D163.
Kodelon, which was Kodak's equivalent of Agfa Rodinal and Ilford Certinal was introduced some time in the 1930's and would have been based on pf CEK Mees 1908 earlier research at Wratten and Wainwright. D163 was Kodak Ltd's main Universal film and paper developer.
