this is a quote from Wendy Erickson from Ilord; or rather was with Ilford. this can be found of the Ilord site, under the cafe pro section.

Hey not so fast! Even with the job cuts, ILFORD is alive and well. ILFORD factories are busy making film and inkjet paper- Production is in full swing as usual. Please don't give up on a great 125 year old company- It's the next 125 years that will be most interesting!
