ILFORD PHOTO has not made cassettes for 35mm photographic film in the UK since the early 1960’s. Since the rise of digital imaging the reliable supply of quality film cassettes from external supply sources has been problematic. To overcome this HARMAN has invested over £350K in setting up its own cassette manufacturing facility.
The installation project has been completed ahead of schedule and is now in production making cassettes for the world famous ILFORD range of black and white photographic films, at the factory in Mobberley, Cheshire, England.
HARMAN Managing Director, Peter Elton says, “This is just another example of our ongoing commitment to traditional monochrome photography. We are now able to manufacture our own cassettes and this gives us, and our customers, improved security for the future of film production”.
