The company known as Agfa-Gevaert is still thriving, but, they're no longer in the Graphic Supplies business, Jon ...

That part of the business was sold to an independent, who continued the business as AgfaPhoto - in 2004 ...

It was declared bankrupt the following year ...

Since then, a company named Adox ... has committed to making ALL Bromides and ALL RC papers, as Agfa made them through to the 2004-2005 period ...

However, there's been a delay in getting all the new stock out there ... distributorships are howling ... but, the volume just isn't there, anymore ....

The production of material identical to the last generation of fibre-based and resin coated photographic Agfa Multigrade papers has been resumed by Adox. (Dated 2018)

In order to develop and produce a larger variety of analog products in the future ADOX has acquired IlfordĀ“s 52cm medium scale coating machine in Marly, Switzerland in February 2015.

I had most of that, Bill ...

The only thing I don't get - is where did Adox come from, and what's their vested interest in making and marketing Agfa photographic papers?
