Fujifilm has reaffirmed its commitment to film by partnering with Hallmark Refining Inc. The partnership makes Fujifilm the sole national distributor for all varieties of Hallmark silver recovery equipment and metallic replacement columns, and allows Fujifilm to provide, through Hallmark Refining, competitive column and electrolytic flake silver refining services to most of its customers.
Silver prices are as high as they have been since the 1980â€™s and it is an excellent source of revenue for large and small photo processing operations alike. By entering into this partnership with Hallmark, Fujifilm hopes to provide customers with competitive prices and timely returns for recovered silver.
â€œGiven the current market, we believe the need exists to expand our silver imaging solution offerings to our customers to include economical silver recovery equipment and services as well. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our customers who choose to continue offering silver halide imaging products to remain in the silver halide photo processing business,â€ said Bob Harvey, Director of Marketing, Chemicals Group, for Fujifilmâ€™s Imaging Division.
