IlfordIlford and Oji Paper inkjet photo media : The future of Ilford, a major player in the development and manufacture of photo quality media for inkjet printing and photographic processes, has never looked better. Following the overwhelming success at this year’s Photokina and the launch of several exciting new inkjet products, Ilford is now in the final stages of part one of its expansion programme currently underway in Switzerland. Part two of the investment programme will begin in early 2007. The manufacturing site in Marly, Switzerland - where the world-renowned Ilford branded Galerie paper is made - produces over 100 different types of inkjet photo media and professional colour photographic media.

With over 400 employees, the site makes enough coated paper per year to encircle the world once over! Thanks to Oji’s backing, Ilford has further advanced its technological capabilities and its coating processes resulting in increased capacity and a streamlined converting and packaging operation. Furthermore, Ilford has invested in several strategic R&D projects combining the strength, market knowledge and experience of Oji and Ilford: from the tree plantation and the manufacture of paper pulp in Japan to the complicated coating and finishing process in Switzerland. Today Ilford can provide the market with a highly advanced A-Z solution.

Ilord and Oji - Performance
“I’m delighted to see how Ilford is thriving since Oji’s acquisition in 2005”, said Dai Jones, Managing Director of Ilford. “This demonstrates how well established the Ilford name is in the Imaging market. With the ongoing dedication of its customers and the backing from Oji, the company will continue to build on its legacy, ensuring its performance meets the requirements of tomorrow’s marketplace”, he concluded.

Coated photo paper performance - Ilford and Oji
“The continuous drive of Ilford to improve product performance was just one of the key reasons that we acquired all the assets of Ilford Imaging Switzerland GmbH in 2005”, said Kimiyoshi Uranishi, the CEO of Ilford Imaging Switzerland GmbH. He went on to say, “We are heavily investing in the company’s manufacturing facilities in Switzerland as we believe Ilford has a strong future in the development and production of inkjet and colour products. This strategic alliance will help position us as the leading worldwide manufacturer of photographic quality media”, he added.
