Their 35mm film has been converted in most cases (there are some exclusions) by German company Photostar / Tura. Excellent, highly skilled employees there (I've been there in the factory). This company is a converting specialist for photographic materials for decades.
Their 120 film has been converted in the past by different companies (depending on the film): Forte, Foma, Fotokemika, Ilford. Currently Foma and Ilford are doing it (if you look at the 120 Rollei Infrared film you will see at once that it is converted by Ilford).
Sheet film converting has been done by German company Banse&Grohmann / Wephota http://wephota.de/ . Also a company with excellent reputation in converting sheet film and paper.

That is truely amazing about how the European film industry has cooperation of other outfits to do the "Confectioning" of the various sizes of color and B&W films, I did notice Kodak sending some film stocks to Mexico for cutting and packing, seems Fuji does a bit of farming out of the cutting and packaging to plants in other countries as well.

Little wonder most films from Europe only say "Made in E.U." on the package, I'll bet that is what will be on the LomoChrome Purple 400 film box.

Do you think the LomoChrome Purple 400 film in 35mm will have DX coding on the cartridge? That will make life easier if you want to use a camera with automatic transmission as well as use it with stick shift cameras.
