Kentmere Analog BW film range Canada

As part of its commitment to supporting analog photography even in today’s digital age, photo-imaging company HARMAN Technology Limited is to offer a number of additional films to the Canadian market. In a move that strengthens its partnership with Canada’s leading distributor of photographic supplies, the British-based manufacturer has confirmed it will soon sell a number of completely new KENTMERE PHOTOGRAPHIC films through AMPLIS FOTO. With a 20-year track record of meeting the needs of advanced amateurs, professional photographers, videographers and the motion picture and television industry, Amplis Foto already carries products from Harman’s two other brands – the Ilford black and white range and the Harman Photo range of professional quality, inkjet media. It has also stocked Kentmere Photographic products since 2006, a year before Harman Technology acquired the brand. The films, which will be available from Amplis this month, are a brand new 100 and 400 ASA 35mm films both offered in 24 exp, 36 exp and 100' bulk rolls. These new products will complement the existing Kentmere Photographic range carried by Amplis, which includes: VC Select, Fineprint VC, Bromide papers. All these products can be processed using Ilford chemicals and enjoy particular popularity in the photo-education market due to their consistent quality and competitive prices. The decision by Harman to sell the new films in the Canadian market also ties to the manufacturer’s original plans for the Kentmere brand. After acquiring Kentmere in 2007, it was always Harman’s intention to use its greater size and infrastructure to benefit this new addition to its business. As such, it has already used its expertise and advanced manufacturing technology to increase batch-to-batch consistency of the Kentmere Photographic range. This latest development will contribute to improved worldwide product availability. Speaking of the development, Steven Brierley, Director of Marketing at Harman technology, said: “Harman technology’s mission is to the best – and if necessary, the last - in black and white and offering the new Kentmere photographic films to analog photographers in Canada is a natural part of this. Using Amplis to distribute these products also made complete sense. Not only do they enjoy an established infrastructure, a reputation for exceptional service and an extensive nationwide reach, but we already benefit from an established and proven partnership.”
