When the Swiss color division and the British monochrome division split, there was an agreement to allow sharing the Ilford marketing name to
provide a sense of product continuity, along with a certain amt of website sharing. But otherwise these have been completely different
enterprises for awhile now. The world of Inkjet supplies is already flooded with competition, and it would be difficult to compete with the international footprint of Fuji and Kodak in the RA4 paper category (plus Mitsubishi is a player in Asia). That left Ciba/Ilfochrome as their only
truly unique category, which for some time had such miserable distribution issues, it was a dead man walking. They probably have some dye
and patent holdings, but those are niches of little interest to us.
