UK-based parent company, however, is restructuring
Ilford Imaging USA reports that the recent restructuring announcement by its UK-based parent, Ilford Imaging Limited, pertains only to that company and affiliate Ilford Imaging UK. The Swiss business, including the Ilford production facility in Marly, and Ilford Imaging USA "continues to do business as normal," the company reports.
"The US entity is operating in a business-as-usual fashion, and is continuing to accept and deliver on its orders as we evaluate how the changes at the UK companies might affect us," says Ward Phillips, president of Ilford Imaging USA. "We are taking every action and precaution to maintain ongoing operations with our customers."
Ilford Imaging Limited announced that the company has filed for insolvency, and is set to split its UK and Swiss businesses and sell them. The Swiss operation develops and manufactures digital inkjet products, while the Cheshire, England operation is geared toward black-and-white films and photographic papers.
Ilford Imaging USA sells, among other products, Studio turnkey systems based around the Epson 7600 and 9600 printers, as well as the Ilford Galerie Professional Inkjet photo papers in sheets and rolls. (Ilford Imaging USA: www.ilford.com)
