Photokina 2006 marks Tudor’s 30th Anniversary

Tudor’s export business grew out of Tudor Consult, which offered an early form of soft franchise whereby African and Middle Eastern photo processing businesses could trade as the famous Tudor brand in return for purchasing film and paper. Its own brand film continues to be popular worldwide. Tudor Export has now evolved into a more broadly based distributorship that covers the whole imaging market.

Some of the 8,500 product lines represented on Stand No: 010 in Hall 10.2, Aisle A, include stylish frames with wide design appeal; albums, such as the innovative Fair Trade Nkuku hand-made albums and accessories, produced by combining natural and sustainable materials with ethical work practices; Crown’s quality mini-lab sundries; Halina cameras, binoculars and CCTV; kiosk solutions from Mitsubishi and Fuji; batteries from Energizer and Uniross, including the budget Encore range; plus other digital products such as media cards. In addition, Tudor remains a principal distributor of Fuji, selling all products from its extensive catalogue.

New at the show and of interest to UK visitors is the introduction of new frames and albums with exclusive, co-ordinated gift led products. Tudor will also be featuring the Case Logic range of camera bags and CD and DVD storage items – a globally recognised brand for the retailer to stock – for which Tudor is exclusive distributor to the independent photo market in the UK. Sanyo’s new cameras will also be on display, including its high definition range, for which Tudor is also a principal wholesaler in the UK.
