Lumiére were taken over by Ciba Geigy in 1962, they already owned Tellko the Swiss photographic company and by 1969 Ciba also owned Ilford and the Lumiére plant became part of Ilford (as did the Tellko plant). For a short spell after the merger some products may have carried both names.

Today Lumiére exists only as the Ilford distributor in France.
