Kodak Noir

The death and re-birth of a giant.

Kodak was founded by George Eastman and Henry A. Strong on September 4, 1888.
During most of the 20th century, Kodak held a dominant position in photographic film. The company's ubiquity was such that its "Kodak moment" tagline entered the common lexicon to describe a personal event that was demanded to be recorded for posterity. Kodak began to struggle financially in the late 1990s, as a result of the decline in sales of photographic film and its slowness in transitioning to digital photography. As a part of a turnaround strategy, Kodak began to focus on digital photography and digital printing, and attempted to generate revenues through aggressive patent litigation.

In January 2012, Kodak filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

On September 3, 2013, the company emerged from bankruptcy having shed its large legacy liabilities and exited several businesses. Personalised Imaging and Document Imaging are now part of Kodak Alaris, a separate company owned by the UK-based Kodak Pension Plan.

On January 1, 2015, Kodak announced a new five business division structure; Print Systems, Enterprise Inkjet Systems, Micro 3D Printing and Packaging, Software and Solutions, and Consumer and Film.

January 2017, Kodak announced it was bringing back its Ektachrome film.

May 2017, Kodak released the Ektra smartphone to the US market.

June 2017, Kodak announced plans to release 7" and 10" tablets with ARCHOS in Europe.
