I don't know all the behind the scences, but I always attributed the recent supply problems to Ilford Imaging USA, not the Swiss Ilford.

It was Ilford USA that did not continue to keep a stock of materials to fulfill orders. In fact they made it very cost prohibitive to get certain materials I don't think Ilford Swiss with held paper or chemicals, do you?

I was very happy to hear Ilford USA was gone. Wynit is very accomidating to perviously mentioned materials. So Far(and it is a short term view) Wynit is much better than Ilford USA.
