Following Kodak’s announcement in January to halt production of film cameras it is cutting jobs at manufacturing sites in France and the UK resulting in the loss of around 870 jobs.

The decline of film will see the closure of a facility in Harrow, UK that sensitizes film for the graphics industry and a plant in Nottingham, UK, which primarily produces consumer film. Job losses in France will amount to around 270 following the closure of a site in Chalon, France which produces films and photographic paper. It also plans to restructure its sites in both countries which will reduce the company’s square footage by one third.
