Agfa and Eastman Park Micrographics SIgn Master Supply Agreement

Friday, January 11, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Mortsel (Belgium) - Rochester (USA) - The Agfa-Gevaert Group (Agfa) and Eastman Park Micrographics (EPM) announced today that they have signed a worldwide, long-term supply agreement for microfilm products. 

Under the agreement, Agfa will manufacture microfilm and related photochemicals for EPM, and EPM will distribute these products worldwide under its own brand name Imagelink. As a result of the new arrangement, EPM will be able to assure the long-term continuity of supply to the market and Agfa will increase its microfilm production significantly. The parties expect the new product arrangement will become operational in mid to late spring, 2013. 

"Microfilm based archiving continues to be an interesting niche market," says Louis Kuitenbrouwer, Vice President Marketing & Sales of the Agfa Specialty Products business group. "Combining Agfa's longstanding experience in high- quality film manufacturing with EPM's strong offering to the preservation and archiving market will provide customers the best solution for their long-term product and support needs. The higher microfilm turnover of Agfa will support the continuous utilization of our film manufacturing facilities."

Tim Mortenson, Vice President of Global Operations of EPM, added: "We are looking forward not only to offering Agfa's existing microfilm products under our own Imagelink brand, but together with Agfa, broadening the product range and choices available to customers. These Imagelink branded extensions to Agfa's historical micrographic product lines will enable us to continue to meet the archiving and record preservation requirements of our customer base with the same excellent product quality and support from EPM they now receive."

Imagelink is a registered trademark of Eastman Park Micrographics
