Ilford's distribution world-wide is excellent, I switched back to Ilford films after a break of about 20 years because I just couldn't buy Tmax easily when travelling. What suprised me was Ilford films were readily available but so were Foma.

It wouldn't be the first time Ilford partnered with another company, they had links with Konica/Sakura and manufactured some films for Fuji.
