Eastman Park Micrographics (EPM), the media and equipment business that was spun out of Kodak DI in 2011, this week announced a partnership with the Crowley Company, which will provide worldwide sales and marketing for EPM’s equipment line, which currently includes the IMAGELINK Archive Writer, the IMAGELINK Archive Processor, as well as a pair of OEM’d film to image scanners.
Technically, Crowley’s partnership is with EPM Equipment, which was spun off of EPM this week as well. EPM will continue to sell media/film through its agreement with Agfa. Apparently, the Rochester-based Kodak film production operations, where EPM historically got its film, are winding down.
We’ll have more in depth coverage of these announcements in our next DIR premium issue, which is due out Aug. 23.
